Table of Contents

Dead men may tell no tales, but the symbols on their tombstones do.

Although the meaning of most symbols has remained fairly consistent through the centuriescrosses for Christians, six-pointed stars for Jews, the yin-yang symbol for Buddhists, hearts for love, lambs for innocencenowhere is the language of symbols more prominent than in cemeteries.

Stories in Stone is the first guide to the oft-maligned world of cemeteries. It provides fascinating answers to questions from beyond the grave: What religion were they? What clubs and organizations did they belong to? What was their occupation or hobby? What thoughts did they hold about the afterlife? What was their favorite flower?

Douglas Keister's stunning full-color imagery and historically accurate descriptions have created a beautiful and unique gift for people who like to poke around cemeteries, search out ancestors, bone up on history, or dig skeletons out of the closet. Don't be afraidopen the gate and come on in.
