Cemeteries are greater than ultimate resting areas for the lifeless; they're gateways to an area�s shared historical past. each hand-carved granite or marble monument, each light wood marker, holds a clue. Western Sierra populations boomed with the invention of gold and infrequently 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 heritage represented in a old cemetery. From solitary graves within the woodland to just about forgotten graveyards close to the guts of a city, cemeteries inform a narrative not only of who could have died but in addition of who lived and what used to be significant of their time.
