Going Out Green: One Man's Adventure Planning His Own Natural Burial — Bob Butz
Through memoir, boots on the ground research, conversations with his wife, and a serious degree of levity, Butz considers the options for his final act on Earth. In chapters like, "Wherein a memory of worms offers a glimpse into the future," and "Wherein the spirit of a natural burial is compromised by people looking to make a buck," Butz thinks about the unthinkable, and tells it like he finds it:
- What happens to our body when we die?
- Is six-feet-under enough?
- What about grave robbers?
Includes background on the growing movement toward natural burial preserves and cemeteries in the U.S. and Canada, as well as source information and a bibliography.
"If you want to go out like Ed Abbey — and who doesn’t — here’s the guide you need.
