From the Inside Flap:

STORIES in STONE NEW YORK WRITTEN and PHOTOGRAPHED BY DOUGLAS KEISTER

HERE IS A GUIDE for those who call the New York City area home and for those who live vicariously through and have studied the lives of the residents of its beautiful cemeteries. In fascinating stories and images, Douglas Keister provides GPS coordinates for most gravesites and discusses cemetery symbols, funerary architecture, secret societies and clubs, people, and even their dogs.

DOUGLAS KEISTER is based in Chico, California, and has authored more than thirty-five critically acclaimed books. He also writes and illustrates magazine articles and contributes photographs and essays to dozens of magazines, newspapers, books, calendars, posters, and greeting cards worldwide. His wealth of books on architecture has earned him the title, "America's most noted photographer of historic architecture." His book on cemetery symbolism, Stories in the Stone: A Field Guide to Cemetery Symbolism, has garnered a number of glowing reviews. Sunset magazine said, “Keister has done for cemetery exploration what Audubon did for birding.” Keister has also authored additional cemetery guides titled Forever Dixie and Forever L.A.
