Document Details


Title: Joyce and Theresa Ziegler
Document type: Oral history
Accessibility: Free Only
Repository: Center for Columbia River History. Oral History Archive
Collection: Women and Timber: The Pacific Northwest Logging Community, 1920-1998
Description: Joyce was in her mid-fifties at the time of this interview, and her husband, Jimmy, worked as a bull-bucker and a faller until he was crushed and nearly killed by a falling tree in 1966. Joyce and Jimmy live in Underwood, Washington, and Jimmy now works as a timber cruiser. Jimmy's horrible accident was a seminal event in Joyce's life. She stoically relayed the details of the accident and her response and said that, more than anything, Jimmy's accident strengthened her faith in God. Like many of those interviewed she fiercely defended the logging industry and attacked the Forest Service for mismanagement of the western forests. Joyce is Teresa Ziegler's daughter-in-law.
