WCHS The Last Rafter Softcover book by Robert Goodman. "The Last Rafter" is the story of David Bronson, who came to the St. Croix Valley as a young clerk to Isaac Staples and stayed to play a major role in developing the lumbering and rafting industries in the valley. When Bronson stepped off the boat in Stillwater in 1855 the logging boom was just beginning. When he retired from lumbering and rafting in 1918, the last deadhead had been lifted from the river, the last lumber raft had cleared the Point Douglas bar, and the St. Croix Boom had closed forever. Author Robert Goodman traces the career of this remarkable man through 65 years of boom and bust, and shows how the life of one man has impacted the fortunes of many people who have made the St. Croix Valley their home. 0 stars, based on 0 reviews 0 5
