Almost every tourist destination has a graveyard: Boston, Manhattan, London, Paris, Prague, Rome, Tokyo, even Yosemite. In these persuasive essays, Loren Rhoads explains why you should seek out cemeteries when you travel.
Wish You Were Here: Adventures in Cemetery Travel collects 35 travel essays, which visit more than 50 cemeteries, churchyards, and gravesites across the globe.
Author and photographer Loren Rhoads was the creator and editor of the cult nonfiction magazine Morbid Curiosity. She edited Death’s Garden: Relationships with Cemeteries and served as the former cemetery columnist for Gothic.Net. Now she blogs about graveyards as travel destinations at CemeteryTravel.com.
She’s a longtime member of the Association for Gravestone Studies and the Graveyard Rabbits Association.
“Lovingly researched and lushly described, Loren’s essays transport you to the graveyard, where she is quite a tour guide. Curiosity and compassion burn at the heart of these essays.”
— Paula Guran, Dark Echo magazine
