A Guide to America’s First Pet Cemetery

The Peaceable Kingdom in Hartsdale - America's First Pet CemeteryThe Peaceable Kingdom in Hartsdale – America’s First Pet Cemetery by Edward C. Martin III

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.

Get your own copy on Amazon.

The original book is also available on Amazon: The Peaceable Kingdom in Hartsdale: A Celebration of Pets and their People.
