Review: Rest in Peace: A History of American Cemeteries (People's History)

User Review  - Sesana - Goodreads

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. Read full review
