The Wagon tells of Martin Preib’s police job driving the wagon that picks up the dead bodies. As I am finishing up my senior year of high school, I am working on ethnography in English. Ethnography is a study of a culture of people. My ethnography is on police culture and stereotypes. This book was a beautifully written combination of cold, hard truth and life. His second day on the job, he is sent to retrieve a woman from an apartment building. “I smelled death for the first time,” he writes. “The question that had been lingering since we got the job now came to the forefront: could I handle this?” As the book goes on you see his strength and determination. Tears filled my eyes as I read about him carrying the body of a two-month victim of SIDS from the hospital to the morgue. “He rode in the front sear of the wagon between my partner and me, too small to be placed in a body bag in the back of the wagon.” This book tells of harrowing experiences, happy times and all things in between. It is glamorized like on TV, it is real and it is truth .Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
