Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The New England states are home to the graves of many American war heroes, patriots, founding fathers, politicians, and presidents--John Hancock, Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Adams, for example. But who knows the whereabouts of Katherine Lee Bates, Fannie Farmer, Julia Ward Howe, Howard Johnson, L.L. Bean, Sophie Tucker, and others? Maynard, author of other New England travel books, presents a singular guide to the graves of New England's famous and infamous sons and daughters. Tourists and history seekers can search out the final resting places of criminals Lizzie Borden and Sacco and Vanzetti; authors E.B. White and Robert Frost; Al Capp; inventors Freelon and Francis Stanley; and even legends--the real Mother Goose, Tom Thumb, and Hester Prynne. Arrangement is geographical, and descriptions and directions to cemeteries are included. Of interest primarily to New Englanders, though visitors to the New England states might enjoy.-- Ann E. Cohen, Rochester P . L . , N.Y.
