David Ward
The American Book of the Dead by Oliver Trager(Touchstone 1997)(Nonfiction) is a fantastic reference to America's greatest traveling circus, the Grateful Dead. There's info in this book that will astound even the most experienced Deadhead. I highly recommend this book! My rating: 8.5/10, finished 2014.

Fun. Coffee table book with some great insights and pics, but really doesn't do the whole "dead" scene justice.
This is an interesting book for fans of "The Grateful Dead".
