Quahog Decoy, A Cape Cod Notebook, by Robert Finch

A wooden carving of a quahog, an antique piece of folk art, sets Robert Finch speculating about its creator, and about the lives of early settlers on Cape Cod. It was found in a simple house dating back more than 200 years.  The house is restored now and stands in Drummer Boy Park in Brewster; it is known as the Harris-Black House.
