While taking a critical look at the labor and social issues related to timber, the story of labor, immigration, and development around the San Francisco Bay region is told through the lens of an archaeological case study of a major player of the timber industry between 1885 and 1920. Timber, Sail, and Rail recounts the mill operations and broadly examines its intersections with other industries, such as shipping, brick manufacture, rail companies, lime production, and other lesser enterprises. Three seasons of archaeological fieldwork, as well as ethnography and regional archival work, are examined to emphasize technological and labor components at the historic Loma Prieta mill.

What's in a name? For the picturesque island of Nahant, Massachusetts, answering that question brings you along on Viking raids, below decks on blockade-running schooners, and into harm's way in Civil War battles. Its name, Nahant, is one connection between the many subjects of Sails and Rails. This illustrated history was carefully researched by historians Daniel deStefano and Gerald Butler, and served as deStefano's inspiration for the original artwork reproduced on these pages. This exclusive collection of his work and their research is proudly offered as homage to the island, its people, and to those who've pursued their calling upon (or near) the sea.
