I've always been amazed at HOW these original farmers cut and cleared 100's of thousands of acres of old growth natural forests to establish fields for crops. Usually by hand and with minimal mechanical assistance.

Simply amazing what they could do back then.

Me also. In my life time I have seen to many fields grow up, that I knew where a lot of manual labor was done decades ago to clear them.
