Noted historian John Rousmaniere traces the history of the Evergreens Cemetery in Brooklyn, NY. Beginning with the land itself before the cemetery was founded in 1850, his engaging text shows how the forces that shaped the history of New York-population growth, immigration and growing wealth-also shaped the Evergreens. He also describes the beautiful monuments and fascinating characters that are buried there. Ken Druse's stunning color photographs demonstrate the beauty of the site and the monuments.
