Mourning on the Pejepscot takes a look at this region's mourning culture from its seventeenth-century settlement to the present. Structurally, this study is broken down into four major chapters: Cemeteries; Gravestones; Mourning Dress, Jewelry, and Practices; and Mourning Art. Each chapter begins with an introduction of general New England practices. The balance of each chapter focuses on Pejepscot's customs. The attitudes and practices of the macrocosm (New England) and microcosm (Pejepscot) are compared and contrasted. Pejepscot's periods of uniqueness and assimilation are highlighted.
