AMERICA'S RESTING PLACE. The story of the national cemetery--from the Revolutionary War to the present.
Arlington recounts the complicated history of one of the nation's most famous and most-visited national monuments and its fascinating daily life. Carefully researched and documented, Chris Demarest's watercolor paintings capture the spirit and pathos of the last resting place of more than 300,000 Americans who have served their country.
Chris L. Demarest has written and illustrated many books for children, including No Peas for Nellie, Benedict Finds a Home, and Clemens' Kingdom, all of which were Junior Library Guild Selections. Among his other titles are I Invited a Dragon to Dinner; Hurricane Hunter!: Riders on the Storm; Firefighters A to Z, a New York Times Best Book for Children; and My Little Reed Car, a Parents' Choice Award winner. He also provided the illustrations for Wicked by Gregory Maguire. He lives with his son in New Hampshire.
