Never look at a grave the same way again
Admit it: You're fascinated by cemeteries. We all die, and for most of us, a cemetery is our final resting place. But how many people really know what goes on inside, around, and beyond them?
Enter the world of the dead as Katherine Ramsland talks to mortuary assistants, gravediggers, funeral home owners, and more, and find out about:
Stitching and cosmetic secrets used on mutilated bodies
Embalmers who do more than just embalm
The rising popularity of cremation art
Ghosts that infest graveyards everywhere
If you've ever scoffed at the high price of burying the dead, or ever wondered how your loved ones are handled when they die, or simply stared at tombstones with morbid fascination, then take a trip with Katherine Ramsland and learn about the booming industry -- and strange tales -- that surround cemeteries everywhere.

10 Six Feet Under: A Graveyard Guide to Minnesota
Stew Thornley
304 pp., 4.25” X 8”, 50 b&w photos, appendix, index, paperback, Minnesota Historical Society Press / Borealis Books Imprint
A haunting tour of the final resting places of famous and infamous Minnesotans in their home state.
This handy guide locates the final resting places and tells the stories of more than 375 notable Minnesotans. Author Stew Thornley traveled throughout Minnesota in pursuit of the historical fact, the little-known tale, the striking monument, and the truth behind the colorful exaggeration. Visiting cemeteries from every era and every region of the state, Thornley recounts the histories of the famous, infamous, and just plain interesting Minnesotans who lie at rest in the state.
As Thornley notes in his introduction,
"Cemetery surfing has become an increasingly popular hobby in the past decade. People making treks include genealogists tracing their roots, artists and writers admiring the monuments and epitaphs, travelers looking to get off the beaten path, and people such as myself, who enjoy tracking down the final resting spots of the famous and infamous. Visitors respond in different ways to what they encounter, taking pictures, making rubbings, leaving offerings. . . . While some may find a hobby of visiting graves to be morose or even macabre, I find nothing morbid in seeking out history through cemeteries. There's much to be learned from our past, and one of the liveliest ways to do it is through our dead."
The book contains a useful appendix with a county-by-county listing of the cemeteries and individuals mentioned within. Perfect for road trippers and armchair travelers alike, Six Feet Under is an enlightening guide to the state's history.
