Final resting place of THE BONANZA KING

Of the man. Hopefully not the book. ;-)

Yesterday, Scribner Associate Editor Sarah Goldberg made a pilgrimage out Brooklyn’s Green-Wood Cemetery to pay her respects to THE BONANZA KING, John William Mackay.

The bluff old miner would appreciate how hard Sarah and Editor-in-Chief Colin Harrison worked on the book. Both deserve heaps of credit. Both have my everlasting gratitude. Sarah forwarded these photos this morning. Clicking on the images enlarges them nicely. According to her, Mackay has by far the most impressive mausoleum in the cemetery, atop a shady hill.

 

Thanks, Sarah!
