Whistlepunk

Whistlepunk

Ninety one year old Thelma Godkin in the woods near her home in Chemainus, B.C. September 12, 2013. Godkin, at seventeen, was the lone woman working alongside burly male loggers. Godkin says she felt free among the trees when she worked in the logging camps as a whistlepunk. (LYLE STAFFORD, TIMES COLONIST)
