He seems a nice man, a good companion, commendably moved by what he finds and this is a clever, elegant little book. 'Reading' a graveyard? Well not quite...ironically it is better than a sort of simple key. It is a rather deeper trip than that.
I loved it and have recommended it to many others - I've even lent my own copy out - not something I do lightly. You will start 'boring' you friends with little snippets from the book - but a little knowledge is never a bad thing - I say.
The only slight, and it is very slight, criticism is the 26 photographs in the book - although listed and labelled at the front are not captioned under each plate throughout the book.
The whole book is a joy to read, full of interesting facts - and no printer's typos !!!!
