Tombstones

California author Chris Enss’ latest from TwoDot publishing, More Tales Behind the Tombstones: More Deaths and Burials of the Old West’s Most Nefarious Outlaws, Notorious Women, and Celebrated Lawmen is a fun, fact-filled book of lesser known characters of the West. Whether you are curious about the stories behind tombstones in historic graveyards across America or a serious hobbyist known as a “Graver,” you will like Enss’ diverse set of vignettes of the dearly-departed. From female Apache warrior Lozen to President Herbert Hoover (he was a miner and engineer in Grass Valley, California), the award-winning chronicler of the West may actually have the beginnings of a radio/television series that the master of the little known tidbit of history Paul Harvey would love!
