BULLETIN FOR READERS!
NEW DAREDEVILS BOOK!
At last, a book written about The Ozark Mountain Daredevils, by one of its own, has been released. Written by bassist Michael 'Supe' Granda, "IT SHINED - The Saga of The Ozark Mountain Daredevils" is an expose of the life and times of the band in and out of the spotlight, on and off of the stage, and from the top of the charts to the bottom of the barrel. Not only will you find humorous anecdotes about the music, you will learn about the rigors of the road both here and abroad. Follow the path of the band from its beginnings at the New Bijou Theater in 1971 to one of their last gigs on the stage of the Shrine Mosque in 2004. In between those dates you will find a cornucopia of stories - some good, some bad, some ugly, all entertaining.

Founding Daredevils member, songwriter, harmonica player and singer Steve Cash has written his third book! The book is titled "THE REMEMBERING". It was released on February 22nd, 2011.
“TIME DANCERS”, published by Del Rey, is now available at all major
booksellers. TIME DANCERS is book two of THE MEQ trilogy, so if you haven't met Z and his friends yet, we suggest you do so immediately by reading “THE MEQ”. The adventure is addictive!
“The Meq” is the first novel from Steve. The flavor is refreshingly unusual, with a secret race of childlike immortals--the Meq--groping after a lost heritage while decade after decade of human history ticks by.
