From Here to Eternity: Traveling to Find the Good Death
From Here to Eternity: Traveling the World to Find the Good Death Fascinated by our pervasive fear of dead bodies, mortician Caitlin Doughty set out to discover how other cultures care for the dead. From Here to Eternity is an immersive global journey that introduces compelling, powerful rituals almost entirely unknown in America. She introduces deathcare innovators researching body composting and green burial, and examines how varied traditions, from Mexico’s Días de los Muertos to Zoroastrian sky burial help us see our own death customs in a new light. And in the end, she delivers a serious critique of the U.S. funeral industry.
