Last Rites: The Evolution of the American Funeral

by Todd Harra Author

In this history of funeral rites in America, learn all about how the ways we celebrate the dead have changed over the centuries. As technology and sensibilities have changed, so have our practices around the end of life. But we don't always know where these practices came from originally. In Last Rites, you'll learn all about the history of burial practices and how these end of life traditions came to be. If you've ever wondered why coffins are shaped the way that they are, or what human composting is, author Todd Harra can answer all of your most macabre questions.
