    A good intro in the Juvie Lit group to American cemeteries. I love the epitaphs and when I go on an adventure in a cemetery, that is what I look for as well as the funerary art such as death's winged head and weeping willows. This book gives a well explained overview for a young person who is just trying out cemeteries. For those who will continue to explore cemeteries, please do not forget the epitaphs. When I was in The Finger Lakes Region in NY, I saw a child's stone, c.1863, with the followi [...]

    This book was a bit misrepresented on , but I blame myself for not researching it well enough. Very vague and generalized history but that's too be expected because it's essentially a children's book.

    This is a very short history of cemeteries in America. It's written at around a middle school level. It was pretty good, but it was so brief (90 pages!) that it didn't do much to satisfy my curiosity. For very casual readers.

    This brief history of American cemeteries is very accessible, as well as thoroughly researched and informative.

    It was just "ok." I didn't learn anything new but I did like all of the pictures in this book. I found them to be the most interesting part.
