"...Every metropolis should be so lucky to have its own Sweet Auburn - and a book that so deftly serves up its mysteries."
- Mark Wilson, wildlife journalist, chapter author and contributing photographer for Artic Wings: Birds Of The Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

Stephen Puleo, author of Dark Tide: The Great Boston Molasses Flood of 1919 and The Caning: The Assault That Drove America to Civil War

"In prose, poetry and stunning photographyDead in Good Company shows how a place of death is, in every important way, a place of vivid, vibrant life."
Scott Weidensaul, author of Of a Feather: Living On The Wind and other books
