The research that went into the work will make it a useful guide
for scholars and interesting to anyone who has ever wondered about
an odd-looking monument in an Ozarks cemetery.--Rebecca A. Howard,
Lone Star College "Arkansas Historical Quarterly "
This book is engaging, fascinating, and horrifying as Burnett explores most every conceivable aspect of dying, death, burial, and remembrance. . . . Few things offer more insight into a society than how it responds to death. A landmark work.--Elder Mountain: Journal of Ozarks Studies
