:-) There was Cowboys and Indians play during my childhood as well.
Remembering now the old cap guns... At adulthood, the reality of life
and history is, of course, a good deal more complicated and ugly.
Found myself thinking yesterday that searching for arrowheads in fields
these days is probably less fruitful. Farmers both don't as often plow
and suppose the top layer of soil long turned many times now in any
case. My Grandfather's searches happened more closely to when fields
were first cleared and plowed - in the state of Indiana.
