"Gyppo Logger demonstrates how gyppo wives remade the formerly masculine terrain of logging through their unpaid but vital economic activities in both private and public forums. And it was, arguably, the success of these family businesses that facilitated the dramatic and rapid physical redesign of Northwest forests" - Robert E. Walls "Operating on little capital, substandard equipment, and always on the brink of financial failure, gyppo loggers multiplied in the Pacific Northwest woods in the two decades following the end of the Second World War. Reckless and daring, working through subcontracts and opposed to labor unions and environmental regulations, gyppos were a throwback to entrepreneurs of an earlier time. Margaret Elley Felt's Gyppo Logger captures the independent and stubborn spirit of these maverick operators." - William G. Robbins, Oregon State University
