Abstract Interview of Matthew Boggs by Deborah King.

Interviewer's description-
"Mr. Boggs tells about his mother and grandmother, describing them as strong, independent women. He then tells how his father moved the family around with the logging company. He describes the different logging jobs and recalls how dangerous it was. He began working in the log woods when he was eighteen. He recalls logging virgin timber at Pine Mountain School. He explains the affection that the team drivers had for their horses. Matthew makes it clear that he feels that the old ways of doing things are the good ways. He said emphatically that his grandmother had a 'wonderful' life."
