For his entire life, Derrell Rodine has loved hunting. His enjoyment of hunting has been both personal and professional, as he has led countless hunters through his Saskatchewan company, Scattergun Outfitters. In this memoir, Derrell reflects on the wonderful people he has met and the experiences he has enjoyed. He also recounts a serious illness he thought might lead to death, or at the very least keep him from ever hunting again. Beneath Derrell's tales of adventures and escapades is a man of deep faith who loves God, his family, and his country. Derrell Rodine was born and raised in the Weyburn, Saskatchewan area. After graduating as a psychiatric nurse, he and his wife lived in Regina, Saskatoon, and Winnipeg, and enjoyed hunting all over Saskatchewan and Manitoba. In 1975, he purchased land near where his grandfather had homesteaded. Derrell raised and released pheasants for a number of years. Scattergun Outfitters evolved from this. Hunters from all over North America have hunted with Derrell and his son, Craig. Many of these clients have become close personal friends. Derrell carries a deep respect for the land and the wildlife that inhabit that land. Derrell has a personal faith in our Creator and is involved in many church and community activities.

Celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the most popular and enduring band ever: “Even the most hardcore Deadheads will be impressed by this obsessively complete look at the Grateful Dead’s lyrics” (Publishers Weekly). The Complete Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics is an authoritative text, providing standard versions of all the original songs you thought you knew forwards and backwards. These are some of the best-loved songs in the modern American songbook. They are hummed and spoken among thousands as counterculture code and recorded by musicians of all stripes for their inimitable singability and obscure accessibility. How do they do all this? To provide a context for this formidable body of work, of which his part is primary, Robert Hunter has written a foreword that goes to the heart of the matter. And the annotations on sources provide a gloss on the lyrics, which goes to the roots of Western culture as they are incorporated into them. An avid Grateful Dead concertgoer for more than two decades, David Dodd is a librarian who brings to the work a detective’s love of following a clue as far as it will take him. Including essays by Dead lyricists Robert Hunter and John Perry and Jim Carpenter’s original illustrations, whimsical elements in the lyrics are brought to light, showcasing the American legend that is present in so many songs. A gorgeous keepsake edition of the Dead’s official annotated lyrics, The Complete Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics is an absolute must-have for the fiftieth anniversary—you won’t think of this cultural icon the same way again. In fact, founding band member Bob Weir said: “This book is great. Now I’ll never have to explain myself.”
