And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
Tall Trees, Tough Men, Robert E. Pike - Tales of river drives and the men who, at times, risked their lives for meager pay in the New England logging industry. This book was written about logging before chain saws and before river drives were outlawed. Great read.ReplyDelete
