When Douglas Keister's Stories in Stone was published in 2004, Sunset magazine proclaimed, "Keister has done for cemetery exploration what Audubon did for birding." Here he presents an entertaining exploration of 13 cemeteries in the American South, with 40 notable Southerners who have settled permanently. Forever Dixie provides cemetery explorers with GPS directions to the graves of such famous figures as Martin Luther King Jr., Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Tammy Wynette, Colonel Sanders, Casey Jones, and Johnny Mercer. Here too are interesting and unique graves of ordinary citizens like Thelma Holford of Jonesboro, Arkansas, who commissioned an Italian marble statue of herself and her beloved dog Bunnie.

"Formatted for easy travel and references, the book provides an in-depth look at cemeteries throughout the South, including Metairie Cemetery in New Orleans and Key Underwood Coon Dog Memorial Graveyard in Tuscumbia, Ala., where man's best friend lies in imaginative graves."—Lafayette Daily Advertiser
