This is a look at the changes in the way Americans bury their dead. It begins with the churchyard cemetery of Colonial times, continues through the Victorian landscaped parks to the all-lawn, easy maintenance cemeteries of recent times. Along the way, it also discusses Native American burials, African American slave burying grounds, ethnic cemeteries, military cemeteries, pet cemeteries, and recent green, environmental cemeteries. This book offers an interesting way to look at the changes in American cultural history.
