Sighting By Eye
Selected Essays of a Ruminative Stonemason
by Jim Wesolowski

Trade Paperback, 144 pages w/ illustrations
ISBN 978-0-9773725-3-9

From a back woods camp in northern Vermont to the back of the bus in San Juan, Puerto Rico,
columnist and stonemason Jim Wesolowski takes us on a tour of the unexpected humor and
irony in everyday life.  Sighting by eye is not just the way he has built stone walls for 20 years,
 it is the way he stays grounded in first hand experiences and translates it into his own workable,
journeyman-like view of the world. 

From finding a connection with the war dead of his beloved Mystic River Valley, to returning a rusty
old bicycle to the island where he found it, he sees surprise and wonder at every turn.
