Sinopsis: An old graveyard, writes Ruth Little, is a cultural encyclopedia--an invaluable source of insight and information about the families, traditions, and cultural connections that shape a community. But although graveyards and gravemarkers have long been recognized as vital elements of the material culture of New England, they have not received the same attention in the South. Sticks and Stones is the first book to consider the full spectrum of gravemarkers, both plain and fancy, in a southeastern state.
From gravehouses to cedar boards to seashell mounds to tomb-tables to pierced soapstones to homemade concrete headstones, an incredibly rich collection of gravemarker types populates North Carolina's graveyards. Exploring the cultural, economic, and material differences that gave rise to such variation, Little traces three major parallel developments: a tradition of headstones crafted of native materials by country artisans; a series of marble monuments created by metropolitan stonecutters; and a largely twentieth-century legacy of wood and concrete markers made within the African American community.
With more than 230 illustrations, including 120 stunning photographs by Tim Buchman, Sticks and Stones offers an illuminating look at an important facet of North Carolina's cultural heritage.

Book Description: "Cultural historians, material culture scholars, historians of the American South, and North Carolinians of all persuasions will find this work a fascinating window into the history and cultural traditions of an understudied state. . . . The exciting and unfamiliar stories to be found in Sticks and Stones are the rich multicultural traditions, both black and white, exemplified by locally made gravemarkers. Little's work and Buchman's photographs highlight the cultural diversity of North Carolina that makes identifying a dominant culture or master narrative for the state so difficult. By focusing on a material artifact, Little offers a method to explore--even celebrate--that diversity yet provide a coherent a narrative of change, from place to place and through time."-- Journal of Southern History
