Exploring Stone Walls
- Item #: 137
A Field Guide to New England's Stone Walls. Stone walls can be well maintained historic fences built by the first settlers and they can be tumbledown ruins of rounded cobbles. But all of them reveal their story through the clues they offer. This guide will help you interpret the clues and understand the walls history, age, and purpose. Along the way you will deepen your appreciation of both rural history and glacial geology. The author highlights forty-five places to see interesting and noteworthy walls, many of which are in public parks and preserves, from Acadia National Park in Maine to the South Fork of Long Island.
