    The End of the Road

    A wonderfully quixotic, charming and surprisingly uplifting travelogue that sees Jack Cooke, author of the much-loved The Treeclimbers Guide, drive around the British Isles in a clapped-out forty-year-old hearse in search of famous - and not so famous - tombs, graves and burial sites.

    Along the way, he launches a daredevil trespass into Highgate Cemetery at night, stumbles across the remains of the Welsh Druid who popularised cremation and has time to sit and ponder the imponderables at the graveside of the Lady of Hoy, an 18th-century suicide victim whose body was kept in near perfect condition by the bog in which she was buried. A truly unique, beautifully written and wonderfully imagined book.
