The American Book of the Dead by Oliver Trager(Touchstone 1997)(782.42166) is a fantastic reference about 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.
