Kentucky Book of the Dead by Keven McQueen and Kyle McQueen
In Kentucky Book of the Dead, Eastern KY University professor Keven McQueen pulls creepy stories of life and death in the Bluegrass straight from the pages of history, each presented with commentary and line drawings. Per the publisher:
"In these pages, readers will discover the Grim Reaper's creative side, meet the disgusting ghosts of Louisville, and find out more than they want to know about old-fashioned embalming techniques." A fascinating and dryly witty read!
