Detroit historian Bak takes the reader on a journey through the city's past via its cemeteries. In the introduction, he notes the number of graves that have been lost or disinterred over the centuries, speculating on how many people still lie beneath the city streets. The body of the book consists of photographs of the cemeteries, funerals and memorials throughout the city. Each is accompanied by background information. The diversity of Detroit, from French missionaries and soldiers to politicians, convicts and immigrants of all creeds, is shown through their resting places. There is a page devoted to the passing of Civil Rights icon, Rosa Parks and to the first Muslim cemetery. Bak gives an intriguing look at life and, particularly, death in Detroit.
