"The book's power is its wonderful, evocative photographs. Using such illustrations, Brown defines the place of the gravestone and cemetery in the vernacular culture of America's heartland."--David C. Sloane, author of The Last Great Necessity: Cemeteries in American History
"A most welcome addition to the burgeoning literature on American cemeteries and gravemarkers, and, through its focus upon the nation's heartland, a significant contribution to the study of American regionalism."--Richard E. Meyer, editor of Cemeteries and Gravemarkers: Voices of American Culture
Great photography of cemetery art in this book accompanied by very good narrative. This is one of the best cemetery art books I have found and then owned.Published 9 months ago by Lorraine W. Besch
