Pressestimmen"I have never visited any of the cemeteries surveyed in Annette Stott's comprehensive new work, "Pioneer Cemeteries: Sculpture Gardens of the Old West", but reading her book is the next best thing to visiting them. The author takes the reader on a vivid, personal tour through dozens of overgrown, long-forgotten burial places in the Rocky Mountain area, as well as the surviving cemeteries that are still active today."--Marta Christensen Dawes, "Nebraska History"--Marta Christensen Dawes "Nebraska History "
