"This is without doubt the most detailed and far-ranging study of the great tradition of New England gravestone carving assembled to date. Its meticulously documented research carries us through successive generations of carvers, creating a fascinating mosaic of the individuals and their works... The beautiful and abundant photographs, found both within the book itself and on the accompanying CD-ROM, are an especially welcome enhancement of the detailed analysis of the text." (quote from Richard E. Meyer.) Hardcover, 440 pages.
