“Dennis McCann, one of Wisconsin’s best storytellers, not only knows where the bodies are buried, he knows that many of them have great tales to tell. McCann’s natural curiosity and affection for cemeteries make "Badger Boneyards: The Eternal Rest of the Story" a delight that constantly informs and surprises.” - Doug Moe, daily columnist, the Wisconsin State Journal, author of "The World of Mike Royko" and "Lords of the Ring"
“Nobody tells a story quite like Dennis McCann. In "Badger Boneyards" he weaves the same blend of humor and humanity that made him one of the most widely read newspaper columnists in the state. This is a thoroughly entertaining collection of true stories written by one of Wisconsin’s favorite writers.” - Michael Bie, ClassicWisconsin.com
“Dennis McCann’s latest book is the last word on Wisconsin’s cemeteries. From Bayfield to Prairie du Chien to Milwaukee, he describes the final homes of our former residents with the warmth, humor, and fundamental compassion of a born storyteller.” - John Gurda, Milwaukee historian
“The past is never dead, as McCann vividly recounts in these sometimes funny, often sober, but always enlightening tales of Wisconsin’s disrupted spirits, famous sons and daughters, and unknown citizens. "Badger Boneyards" is an entertaining and insightful look at Wisconsin’s history through its past lives.” - Erika Janik, author of "A Short History of Wisconsin" and "Odd Wisconsin: Amusing, Perplexing and Unlikely Stories from Wisconsin’s Past"
"Not since the days when Sunday family picnics were commonly held in cemeteries have these “cities of the dead” offered so much story-telling material. And what better guide to the stories cemeteries tell than Dennis McCann? His dogged sleuthing unearths tale after tale about some of Wisconsin’s most fascinating historical figures. This is a treasure of a book." - Jerry Minnich, author and general editor of "The Wisconsin Almanac"
