Grandmaland - Cemetery Amusement Park

by SteveFriday, November 16, 2007

Grandmaland Cemetery Amusement ParkWhere will we bury the baby boomers?

Matthew Ware Coulter, an historian, answers the question in his new novel, "Grandmaland".

Grandmaland is a grandiose burial resort and theme park in West Texas, designed to provide a final resting place for the baby-boom generation. The novel follows the development of Grandmaland from its beginnings as an idea in the mind of history professor Calvin Marpoult to the grand opening of the facility.

Along the road to Grandmaland, Marpoult meets a fellow baby-boomer and statistician, Patricia Cornwall, and two work together to make the vision into reality. Included in the vision is a world-class Museum of the Baby Boom which will preserve the history of the boom generation and present it to the boomer's descendants who visit Grandmaland.

Marpoult's efforts to secure financial backing for the project lead him into the tangled and murky business dealings of the Texas-based Royce Group, an investment company with high-level political connections and links to the Central Intelligence Agency. Professor Marpoult literally finds out where "the bones are buried" from the 1961 Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba and discovers connections to the Watergate scandal of the 1970s and the savings and loans collapse of the 1980s.

When the Royce Group tries to tell Marpoult how to present the story of his generation in the Museum of the Baby Boom, the professor is forced to defend the integrity of history.

What makes us Different?

Single-sourced, not crowd-sourced

Each transcription we publish comes from a single-source, be it the cemetery office, government office, church office, archived document, a tombstone transcriber. Other websites already do an excellent job of crowd-sourcing a single cemetery together. But genealogists also need to see the original records from a single source. That's what we offer.
