Costco to Host Book Signings for Southern Arizona Cemeteries Author

Jane Eppinga will be available to sign copies of pictorial history

TUCSON, Ariz. - April 7, 2014 - PRLog -- In a quest to understand an area as diverse as Arizona, there can be no better way than to take a journey to the grave sites of its pioneers and observe the style whereby they made their journey from this world.  The sites may be as simple as a cross or a shrine by the side of a road or as large as Tucson’s Evergreen Cemetery, which has provided a final resting place to more than 40,000 interments.

In this book, one will find the graves of governors, sheriffs, gunfighters, business owners, soldiers, schoolteachers, sports figures, madams, miners and many others from all walks of life. Where possible, an image of the deceased and a brief bio has been included. The epitaphs, symbols and expressions of grief on the graves provide an insight into the loss felt by family and friends. The graves are brief glimpses into Arizona’s pioneer past and author, Jane Eppinga, hopes the book will help readers develop “an understanding of the rich diversity of southern Arizona cultures.”

Highlights of Southern Arizona Cemeteries include:

Explains the symbolism and funerary art used on graves in times past.
Rare images of graves that have never before been photographed.
Genealogical information that will educate readers on Southwest history.
