Rosie McGhee Chronicles An Epic Chapter in American Culture

An insider’s view of life with the Grateful Dead for the first ten years of their history played out with a backdrop of the San Francisco music scene. Rosie found herself in the middle of the action, as it were, and presents this highly articulate and engaging story of her life at the center of this cultural vortex.

A splendidly enjoyable read/listen from cover to cover. Hearing her recite the adventures of her life during this period of her life is a real treat.
