History of American Funeral Directing
Looking for a good, all encompasing book about Funeral Directing…. This is it. This book is an actual text book for Funeral Directors school. I picked up the 6th edition and the 7th edition, though I read the 6th keeping the 7th in pristine order. There is so much information in it, I stopped flagging pages by page 30. I use highlighters and postit notes for information. Too much to keep flagging. This book is going to be a bible for me and the museum in so many ways. I hope to get my hands on more copies so I can sell them for the museum. Simply amazing, and for being a text book it wasn't dry for me.

American Funeral Vehicles by Walter McCall
This book has TONS of amazing photographs. Though I wish they had done more on the horse drawn hearse and how that led to the shape and changes for powered vehicles, this is a collectors book. You can see how things have changed over the years IN PHOTOS! I learned quite a bit from one book, but this gave me visual reference. If you love hearses, get this book. It is worth the money.
