Publisher's Summary

"Death is un-American," an "affront to the American Dream," wrote historian Arnold Toynbee in 1969. It was a time of social movements, and big change: peace and civil rights, environmentalism and women's liberation.

But a quieter revolution was underway too, one led by a few middle-aged women who wanted to change our way of death. They were the founders of the hospice movement. Their movement did not involve marches, but it too had a profound legacy. Today three in 10 Americans will die in hospice care. John Biewen explores the birth of the hospice movement and traces its influence through one woman's final months of life.
