The Salt Lake City Cemetery was established in September 1847 when George Wallace, who arrived with the first company of Mormon pioneers two months prior, buried his young daughter on a picturesque hillside above the Salt Lake Valley. It has since grown to become the largest municipal cemetery in the United States, containing approximately 130,000 gravesites. To walk through the Salt Lake City Cemetery's 120 acres is to trace a path through Utah history and experience a mosaic of the diverse and fascinating individuals who have shaped it: politicians, pioneers, artists, inventors, outlaws, educators, activists, and currently 12 presidents of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. This book highlights these influential figures and many more. It also serves as a guide for navigating the cemetery grounds in person, with grave locations accompanying most captions.

Colonists in Bondage is divided into three parts. The first part discusses the trade in servants, pointing out, among other things, the process of raising a human cargo for a given voyage and the difference between the older institution of indentured servitude and the 18th-century redemptionist system. Part II focuses on the transportation of convicts, differentiating between convict transportation before and after 1718, in addition to the issues surrounding the transportation of rogues and vagabonds on the one hand and military prisoners on the other. The final portion of the text captures the life of the bonded immigrant in America itself.

Uncovering ghost stories in Salt Lake City leads to a spooky mixture of legend, lore and local history. A young female apparition likes to surprise guests of the McCune Mansion by leaping from a mirror. Believed to be stationed at Fort Douglas, a Civil War vet named Clem still teases female visitors. Staff at the historic Devereaux Mansion, once a major social center, relented in their vain nightly attempts to keep the lights off and let the spirits continue their eternal party. And nuns of the Sisters of the Holy Cross still visit patients in the hospital they established. The guides of Story Tours' Salt Lake City Ghost Tour reveal characters who just can't seem to leave the valley.

"The cemetery is located in the unincorporated area of Salt Lake County. It borders between South Jordan and the vicinity of Copperton. To get to the cemetery please follow these driving directions - It is located about 7800 West on the Old Bingham Highway which is the border between the cities of Sourth Jordan and West Jordan, Utah. From I-15 in Salt Lake City, take 9000 South (Exit #298). Follow 9000 South (SR-209) heading west for 2.8 miles. When 9000 South ends, bear left onto the Old Bingham Highway and continue west for another 5.1 miles. You will see the cemetery on the left side of the road, (the south side) as you are driving west. If you pass the bridge with an overpass, or if you see the Kennecott building you have driven too far." -- P. [15].

"Project Remember is a categorized index of the gravesites of over 5300 Americans and others who left their marks on our culture, ranging from Columbus (d. 1506) to Ansel Adams (d. 1984). This reviewer was hard put to think of any name that did not appear in the excellent index. Burial sites of famous animals, mass burials, and a geographic listing of gravesites expand its usefulness. Each entry contains birth and death dates, profession, a brief biographical note, and burial site, if known. While paper and binding are good, the typography is marred by transposed lines, gaps, and other errata." -- Library Journal.
