Where Are They Buried? How Did They Die?
Fitting Ends and Final Resting Places of the Famous, Infamous, and Noteworthy: Revised and Includes the Newly Dead
The perennially best-selling and beloved guide to the lives, deaths, and final resting places of our most enduring cultural icons, now revised and completely updated to include 25 entries of the newly dead
Where Are They Buried? has directed legions of fervent fans and multitudes of the morbidly curious to the gravesides, monuments, memorials, and tombstones of the nearly 500 celebrities and antiheros included in the book. By far the most complete and well-organized guide on the subject, every entry features an entertaining capsule biography full of little-known facts; a detailed description of the death; and step-by-step directions to the site of the grave, including not only the name of the cemetery but the specific roads and trails to take within the cemetery to reach the gravesite. The book also provides a handy index of grave locations organized by state, province, and country to make planning a grave-hopping road trip easy and efficient.
Old favorites such as Jim Morrison, Charles Darwin, Mark Twain, Bonnie and Clyde, Jack Kerouac, Al Capone, Johnny Cash, Mother Teresa, William Shakespeare, Jimi Hendrix, Heath Ledger, and Christopher Columbus, plus the latest entries, which include Steve Jobs, Whitney Houston, Neil Armstrong, Elizabeth Taylor, and Dick Clark, have made this the best-selling book on the subject for more than 10 years.
