Review by Library Journal Review

Tackling everything from the Taj Mahal to a final resting place for champion race horses, Rhoads (cemetery consultant, Travel & Leisure; Wish You Were Here: Adventures in Cemetery Travel) evokes the beauty and history of burial grounds worldwide. About half of the cemeteries are in the United States. Other examples include the Borrehaugene Viking Graveyard in Norway and Okunoin Cemetery, the largest burial ground in Japan. Striking photographs and fascinating narratives accompany each entry. Rhoads's choices range from George Washington's single-family burial plot to larger cemeteries with specific areas of interest such as Nova Scotia's Fairview Lawn, where 121 victims from the Titanic sinking are buried. VERDICT The in-depth stories and eye-catching photographs of monuments and vistas will appeal to most readers. © Copyright 2017. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
