Editorial Reviews

Review

"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
(Jan Holden True West)

Format: Paperback
Never before has a book been so complete and the subject researched more thourghly, than Wommack's From The Grave. Three years of research has produced information for more than 350 cemeteries and mini-biographies of over a thousand pioneers interred in Colorado's cemeteries. Cemetery information, maps, directions, all round out this wonder book. A must read for the historian and genealogist. Humorous epitaphs and ghost stories are an added treat.

The amount of research that went into this book is absolutely incredible. I am native to Colorado and have lived here most of my life. I am so glad to see that someone finally took an interest in the peaple who made this state what it is. Besides the fact that it is so easy to read. One Great Book.

Wommack's book represents a daunting amount of research and should become a standard reference work for geneologists and historians.

This book misses many cemeteries located within it's limits for obvious reasons, but for those cemeteries included the author provides interesting and well written information about the local history and lives of those interred at the site. I personally found the information about eastern Colorado very helpful and interesting.
