    This book is a winner all around! Buy it!!! A+++!

    It would take a lot of talent to create this lovely book, something of which John Thomas Grant has more than his share. His photographs are so exquisite that when you view them each page captures your imagination and evokes a multitude of emotions. Life's journey and end are shown here with anything from sadness to humor and intrigue to honor in a most thought provoking way. John captures humanity in all of its experiences. This book sets you aside as the viewer, draws you in as a participant and then makes you look at your own life and perhaps see that you need to do some adjusting! The photos are exquisite as are the comments assigned to them. If you are a cemetery preservationist you will find this use of gravestones as an art form refreshing. If you are a historian or genealogist your love of things past will appreciate each and every page. If you are simply looking for a new adventure, buy this book and you will get one....a new adventure...... into your soul!
