    I'm a first-generation Eutawan, so I have no relatives buried in Mesopotamia Cemetery. However, all the previous owners of my old house are buried there, so I feel a connection to it anyway. It's lovingly depicted in this book through photographs and anecdotal stories, and I'm told some of the proceeds of the book sales will be going to help preserve the cemetery, which is in very poor shape in places. This attractive little book is an excellent addition to my Eutaw - and Southern history - library.
