By Christopher A. Ward

Cemeteries are greater than ultimate resting locations for the useless; they're gateways to an area�s shared historical past. each hand-carved granite or marble monument, each pale wood marker, holds a clue. Western Sierra populations boomed with the invention of gold and sometimes diminished as gold fever waned. Cemeteries of the Western Sierra makes use of the lens of the cemetery to glimpse a wealthy and disappearing historical past. Displaced indigenous populations, miners, dueling newspaper magnates, chinese language pioneers: all are a part of the mosaic of historical past represented in a ancient cemetery. From solitary graves within the wooded area to just about forgotten graveyards close to the heart of a city, cemeteries inform a narrative not only of who can have died but in addition of who lived and what was once significant of their time.
