This web site accompanies the book Pioneer Cemeteries: Sculpture Gardens of the Old West, by Annette Stott. Here the reader will find all of the contemporary black-and-white photographs from the book reproduced in color, as well as hundreds of supplemental images that illustrate key concepts and monuments discussed in the book.

Choose from the links above to explore the images by 'Chapter and Page' from the text of the book; 'Town and Cemetery' of the monument's location; the 'Tombstone Maker'; or by the name of the 'Person Memorialized' by a monument. (Currently only "Chapter and Page" and "Town and Cemetery" are functional; others will be coming soon.) The final link above takes you to the University of Nebraska web site to order the book, which is also available from Amazon.com and other major booksellers.
