Work advertising the glories of the lumber industry for those willing to emigrate and work in the northern portion of Idaho, published by the Humbird Lumber Company. With land spread across Bonner, Boundary, and Kootenai counties, the company writes, "We employ hundreds of men the year round, and naturally we will be glad to help our land purchasers with lucrative employment..." and "If you feel that your present work and location will not lead you well on the road to success, you had better investigate Bonner County, Idaho." They include information on the agriculture and climate in the region, illustrated throughout with views of the timbering, orchards and farms, and amenities offered by the town of Sandpoint. We locate a single copy of this work in OCLC dated 1915, at Brigham Young University. Three others, dated 1913 are located at Yale, University of Idaho, and SMU.
