My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Sharing the name of the centennial book about the first pet cemetery in America might have seemed clever, but it’s actually confusing. I thought I was buying an updated version of the older book, but got a new book with the same title. Which means I still need to track the older book down.
This book is well illustrated with lots of black & white photos of the pet cemetery and its people. The captions repeat the text, which I found mildly frustrating since it’s such a slim volume.
All in all, I’m glad to add this book to my collection, but I may let it go when I succeed in finally tracking down the original book. I wonder why they didn’t simply reprint, since the author of this volume is an longtime employee of the pet cemetery.
