What is living in the woods?  How do you know what is there?   Frequently when hiking, we come upon crumbling stone walls, wells, trash heaps, fruit trees, and other evidence of former inhabitants but most of us do not realize what we are looking at.  This program will show how to differentiate between the works of man and the works of nature.
