"Charlie Jordan nailed it . . . [he] struck a cord for all who venture out of doors any time of year . . . Headstone hunting is a way to combine outdoor recreation with a little New Hampshire history . . . New England's cemeteries have a special attraction for the history buff or the curious biker."-- "Valley News"
"These are true stories, and Jordan has done the historical research to document their veracity. They are the kind of stories of which fiction writers say: 'You can't make something like that up; nobody would believe it!'"-- "Nashua Telegraph"
