This is the model cemetery guidebook. It’s generously illustrated by Hucke’s black-and-white photos. Hucke was the impresario behind Graveyards. com, which unfortunately hasn’t been updated in over a year. I'm also author of 199 Cemeteries to See Before You Die and Wish You Were Here: Adventures in Cemetery Travel, as well as a space opera trilogy. I'm co-author of a series about a succubus and her angel.

But the book was grown in some measure out of author Matt Hucke’s graveyards.

Corpses, Coffins and Crypts: A History of Burial by Penny Colman This comprehensive volume examines the compelling subjects of death and burial across cultures and societies. Corpses, Coffins, and Crypts includes photographs and descriptions of famous people, a collection of literary quotes, images of death and burial in the arts, interesting epitaphs, and gravestone carvings.

Charting the lore and lure of Chicago's ubiquitous burial grounds, this resource unearths the legends and legacies that mark the city's silent citizens—from larger-than-lifers and local heroes to machine mayors and machine-gunners. The book demonstrates that Chicago's cemeteries are home not only to thousands of individuals who fashioned the city's singular culture and character, but also to impressive displays of art and architecture, landscaping and limestone, egoism and ethnic pride. Mysterious questions such as Where is Al Capone buried? and What really lies beneath home plate at Wrigley Field? are answered in this reminder that although physical life must end, personal notes—and notoriety—last forever.

Discover a Chicago That Exists Just Beneath the Surface—About Six Feet Under.

Ever wonder where Al Capone is buried? How about Clarence Darrow? Muddy Waters? Harry Caray? Or maybe Brady Bunch patriarch Robert Reed? And what really lies beneath home plate at Wrigley Field? Graveyards of Chicago answers these and other cryptic questions as it charts the lore and lure of Chicagos ubiquitous burial grounds.

Like the livelier neighborhoods that surround them, Chicagos cemeteries are often crowded, sometimes weary, ever-sophisticated, and full of secrets. They are home not only to thousands of individuals who fashioned the citys singular culture and character,but also to impressive displays of art and architecture, landscaping and limestone, egoism and ethnic pride, and the constant reminder that although physical life must end for us all, personal note—and notoriety—last forever.

Grab a shovel and tag along as Ursula Bielski, local historian and author of Chicago Haunts, and Matt Hucke, photographer and creator of graveyards.com unearth the legends and legacies that mark Chicagos silent citizens—from larger-than-lifers and local heroes, to clerics and comedians, machine mayors and machine-gunners.

I am a Chicago native and many of my family members are here in these cemeteries. I picked up this book while I was visiting a relative and found it to be so interesting so I bought myself a copy. It's really a Chicago history book, in a sense, because so many of the great names that came out of that city are in it along with their stories. Every cemetery has a story, as well. It's an easy read with lots of pictures which makes it better. I recommend this to anyone who don't mind a little creepy-ness, but yet, wants a little background on the many ways all the cultures and ethnicities in Chicago buried their family members. I'm glad I bought a copy of my own.

This was the second book I ordered in relation to cemeteries in Chicago the other book was the one on Mt. Carmel & Queen of Heaven... This book is a great one its nice to see a book on Chicago cemeteries... It has some photo's but mostly written information... Also lists the phone numbers of the cemeteries and has the cemeteries organized by which side of town they are located in the book... Its a great book somewhat small in regards to the number of pages compared to other books of this nature... Over all its an interesting book... I wish it listed the locations of the people featured in the book but none the less its a great quick reference...

I love to browse cemeteries and that is what this book does. It gives us glimpses of the famous, infamous, and just ordinary folks that are buried in Chicago. I loved this book. The pictures are wonderful. The author has done his research and created an interesting read. The author has pointed out the best of the best in many of the cemeteries. If you love the beauty of a cemetery this book is for you.
