Editorial Reviews

True West - Jan Holden

"This book takes the reader through many of the best known and more obscure cemeteries in Colorado. A handy index and an impressive bibliography round out this comprehensive research tool. Linda Wommack has given serious history buffs a nice book for our research libraries, and for those who only dabble, there are still enough real people profiles to make From the Grave a good investment."—Jan Holden for True West Magazine

I LOVE this book!  When we travel through our beautiful state this book is always in the console. We have found  cemeteries we didn't even know exisited. I would suggest it to anyone that is interested in CO history or those who enjoy the artful statuary   and interesting headstones and funerary art.  I was checking to see if there was an e book. That would be awesome!
