From the Back Cover
Every Stone a Story is a collection of stories gleaned from Manitoba’s buried history. Each is illustrated with a photograph of a headstone and each describes the life, death and/or experiences of someone buried in a particular cemetery. The stories are often about the famous or infamous, but equally often they are about people little known outside their communities, but who have done something extraordinary. The stories are grouped according to their topics: politicians, artists, and sportsmen and women, crimes and scandals, accidents and disasters, and pioneers.
