This is the special story of a special place. "A green oasis for the refreshment of the city's soul and body" is how the architect Andrew Jackson Downing described an ideal landscape. And he created one at The Evergreens Cemetery in historic Brooklyn, New York. Always engaging, at times surprising, sometimes even quirky, this fascinating story of a little-known gem and its people over 160 years tells of the many roles a cemetery plays--as burial ground, park, and patriotic site--in the tumultuous sweep of American history. With acclaimed nature photographer Ken Druse's photos and many historical illustrations, historian John Rousmaniere traces the Evergreens' multi-faceted history from its early, difficult years to today, when its grounds are almost filled and it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
