Advocates for the Dead

When the first edition of "Graveyards of Chicago" was published in 1999, taphophiles (cemetery enthusiasts) were still often considered morbid or disturbed. Matt Hucke and Ursula Bielski's regional bestseller did its part in changing that, revealing cemeteries to be fascinating repositories of history, art, culture, and folklore, tranquil spots for exploration, reflection, and discovering who we are. Feeling that their original work was never finished, Hucke and Bielski have continued to deepen their knowledge of and dedication to our local burial grounds, returning with this entirely revised and updated edition.
