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.
