Silent Cities: San Francisco chronicles the impact of cemeteries on American cities through the gold-rush development of San Francisco: the relocation of existing cemeteries and prohibition of burials within the city limits at the turn of the century, spawning America's first necropolis, the tiny town of Colma, and the culture of a place where death is exiled.
