    Smile fanged in flints

    I read the following sentence:
    The farm was crouched on a bleak hillside, where its fields, fanged in flints, dropped steeply to the village of howling a mile away.

    What does "fanged in flints" mean here? Thanks

    NOT A TEACHER

    It seems to be a metaphor for scattered with sharp or pointy stones.
    Is howling the name of the village? If so, it should be capitalised.
