Powwow River Books Amesbury, MA 2003 Quarto, pp. 190. Bibliography and Appendices. Illustrated with b/w photos, drawings and maps.
A study of several examples of early American carved milestones, doorstones, and a walkway stone found in Newbury, MA, examinimg their carved designs and researching the imagery and the family of stonecarvers that created them. The story of these stones presents a fascinating historical puzzle that ultimately reveals the artistic and cultural context of their decorations and meaning, providing insight into "the art of the 1600's and early 1700's, into the social traditions brought from the old world, and into how colonial men honored some of their women."
