Clearing the Field

Charles Peterson
Bio Page


Long rows of stones lining the edges of once plowed fields tell of an investment of time and labor which most of us can scarcely imagine. Generations of farm families worked annually to clear their land of stones brought to the surface by frost and plow. These cairns remain as unintended monuments to the hard wok and dedication required of the entire family in coaxing their livelihood from the soil... producing what is absolutely essential to us all.

"Clearing the Field" is my tribute to them.
