Uncle John and the Sawmill

Jack and his family lived in Amber Valley. Jack went to work at Edgar Junk's sawmill in Athabasca, west of Baptiste Lake. Working three days a week for six months, Jack earned enough to buy Edgar's Model A Ford. Jack worked in a number of sawmills in Alberta before ending up in Whitehorse, Yukon.
