Stories in Stone: A Field Guide to Cemetery Symbolism and Iconography
BY: Douglas Keister
Awesome illustrated resource book for cemetery sleuths that decodes the meanings of all the symbols youre likely to encounter, including: plants, animals, the human body, tradesman's tools, religious icons, secret society emblems, fraternal organization insignias, tokens, and death seals.

I love this book. It goes with me on every cemetery excursion we go on. We have a lot of Odd Fellows and Free Masons up in this area. I've even found a Knight of Pythias (sp?) or two. *Evil Grin* We even have Bruce and Brandon Lee and Jimi Hendrix. I seriously reccomend this book to anyone and everyone wandering through the cemetery either during the day or at night. It's totally worth it.
