This book is for the historians and sociologists out there. Love Cemetery: Unburying The Secret History Of Slaves by China Galland is going to appeal very much to a certain audience. Which is a shame because it deals with a worthy subject that we ought to examine more often in the public eye.
The book takes us to Texas and the unmarked and unmourned cemeteries full of the bodies of slaves. She unpacks the complicated relationship between the local people and their dark and brutal past. It is not an easy read but it is a worthwhile one. You can pick it up for less than 2 dollars on Amazon at the moment and if it sounds interesting to you, I recommend that you do.
