Author of Cappy Ricks, The Long Chance, Etc. The valley of the giants. Along the coast of California, through the secret valleys and over thetumbled foothills of the Coast Range, extends a belt of timber of anaverage width of thirty miles. In approaching it from the Oregon linethe first tree looms suddenly against the horizon-an outpost, as itwere, of the host of giants whose column stretches south nearly fourhundred miles to where the last of the rear-guard maintains eternalsentry go on the crest of the mountains overlooking Monterey Bay.

Home Peter B. Kyne The Valley of the Giants. The valley of the giants, . 9. Moira worked in the general office, and except upon occasions when Brycedesired to look at the books or Moira brought some document intothe private office for his perusal, there were days during whichhis pleasant "Good morning, Moira," constituted the extent of theirconversation. To John Cardigan, however, Moira was a ministering angel. Gradually she relieved Bryce of the care of the old man. But through all those fruitful years of toil he had stillfound time to dream, and the spell of the redwoods had lost none of itspotency. He was still checker-boarding the forested townships with hisadverse holdings-the key-positions to the timber in back of beyondwhich some day should come to his hand. Also he had competition now:other sawmills dotted the bay shore; other three-masted schoonerscarried Humboldt redwood to the world beyond the bar, over which theywere escorted by other and more powerful steam-tugs.

In the summer of 1850 a topsail schooner slipped into the cove under Trinidad Head and dropped anchor at the edge of the kelp fields.

AUTHOR OF CAPPY RICKS, THE LONG CHANCE, Etc. In the summer of 1850 a topsail schooner slipped into the cove under Trinidad Head and dropped anchor at the edge of the kelp fields. Fifteen minutes later her small boat deposited on the beach a man armed with long squirrel rifle and an axe, and carrying food and clothing in a brown canvas pack. From the beach he watched the boat return and saw the schooner weigh anchor and stand out to sea before the northwest trades.

In the summer of 1850 a topsail schooner slipped into the cove under Trinidad Head and dropped anchor at the edge of the kelp-fields. Fifteen minutes later her small-boat deposited on the beach a man armed with long squirrel-rifle and an axe, and carrying food and clothing in a brown canvas pack. The man was John Cardigan; in that lonely, hostile land he was the first pioneer. This is the tale of Cardigan and Cardigan's son, for in his chosen land the pioneer leader in the gigantic task of hewing a path for civilization was to know the bliss of woman's love and of parenthood, and the sorrow that comes of the loss of a perfect mate; he was to know the tremendous joy of accomplishment and worldly success after infinite labor; and in the sunset of life he was to know the dull despair of failure and ruin. Read by Roger Melin, music by Kevin MacLeod.

Great old book by the author of The Go-Getter. A love story and a lesson in perseverance and business. Highly recommend.
Detenta
This book is a great story about the big Redwood Trees and the West in its early stages. This author writes good!
Adorardana
The story starts out a bit slow, but stick with it and before long you will find yourself really enjoying the read
Dagdatus
fairly good.

Old time morals. Old time ethics. Great book that takes you back to a time of honor and code. Highly recommended.

Of the books that I buy, after I,ve read them, the good ones are donated to the library, the better ones are given to friends, but I selfishly keep the best ones in my attic to read again years later. This book is a well worn hard cover published in 1918. I wonder how many times it's been read in 100 years?

The book keeps your attention, but, the outcome is predictable. The reader gets a good sense of the changing views regarding conservation since the book was written. It is difficult to believe that loggers felled 3000 year old trees with only an eye to profit, but the writer certainly knew or researched the details of the logging industry, and you can readily identify with the feelings of many of the lumberjacks. Some parts are rather implausible, but they are amusing and make The Valley of the Giants a fun read.
Since this book is now in the public domain, Librivox has a free audiobook version of this. I had great difficulty stopping 'reading' this book It is very well written and the 'back and forth' one-up-manship between the Cardigan's and the Colonel was even suspenseful at times. Add to that the mounting tension between Bryce and Shirley and it is very much a 'page-turner'. LOVED it!
