A Quickie Guide to the Cemeteries of Seattle

Cemeteries of Seattle (Images of America (Arcadia Publishing))Cemeteries of Seattle (Images of America) by Robin Shannon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A good addition to the Images of America graveyard books. As is typical, the text is circular and no doubt leaves much out, but if it inspires a true guide (with color pictures!) to Seattle’s lovely Lake View Cemetery, then it will have done its job.

It did guide my own visits to the graves of Jimi Hendrix and Bruce Lee, despite the typo in the listing of Hendrix’s final resting place. Lucky for me, there is no Evergreen Cemetery in Renton, Washington.

The author did a good job with the Seattle pioneers buried in Lake View, including both photos of the people and of their tombstones.  Some cemetery books actually forget to show you what you’re looking for.

You can inspire your own exploration of Seattle’s permanent residents by getting your own copy at Amazon: Cemeteries of Seattle (Images of America: Washington).
