A young boy's father, like many of the local farmers, owes money to the powerful Mr. Richard. Although Mr. Richard has been unfriendly, when the boy sees him clearing a field of stones, he decides to lend a hand. The boy's father joins in, and by dawn the difficult job is completed and the debt has been forgiven. This historically accurate story of farm life in the '20s expands the author's series of stories about traditional rural life.
