What awaits beyond the cemetery gates ...? Journey into the cemetery and beyond with author Minda Powers-Douglas and meet cemetery sextons, gravediggers, preservationists, writers, artists, authors, ghost hunters, the director of a funeral museum, a genealogist, and an assortment of taphophiles (people who love cemeteries). Discover what's really behind our attitudes toward death, graveyards and those resting inside them. Find out what is superstition and what's fact in this insightful and often funny guide into the world of cemeteries. You'll meet British horror author Simon Clark, "low-brow" artist Madame Talbot, genealogy author and lecturer Sharon DeBartolo Carmack, Jon Austin from the Museum of Funeral Customs, and New Orleans Voodoo Priestess Miriam, as well as many more intriguing individuals. Come explore the dark side ... it's not as scary as you think. You'll never look at a cemetery the same way again.
