    Book Description:
    Three quarters of a million people visit Graceland each year—40,000 of them during "Elvis Week", the anniversary of his death in August. Strausbaugh describes the religious fervor of Elvis followers, and places Elvism in the context of many grassroots movements away from traditional churches, and explores parallels to Elvis worship in other cultures past and present.
