Following the September 11, 2001 crash of United Airlines Flight 93 into a field near Shanksville, PA, local residents and visitors began leaving personal items behind, creating an unplanned memorial.

"An Uncommon Field," a new book of photography and prose published by Carnegie Mellon University Press, celebrates what came to be known as the Flight 93 Temporary Memorial through the eyes of Richard Snodgrass, a Pittsburgh-based photographer and author. The first and only planned book on the Temporary Memorial, "An Uncommon Field" is a testament and tribute to the heroes of Flight 93 and the vast support and American spirit of those who visited the crash site.

The book consists of 92 black and white photos and 25 sections of text describing the events of Flight 93, the development of the Temporary Memorial, and Snodgrass' experiences at the site.
