Read full description of the books The Botany and Chemistry of Hallucinogens:Definitive, masterful, wonderful coverage of the plant entheogens. Organized by botanical families, and well illustrated with drawings, photos, and chemical formulas. Much on ethnobotany, history, and chemistry as well. Many new intriguing species to explore; special chapters on possible new hallucinogens. Well referenced and indexed. Good match with Pharmacotheon, especially for great botanical illustrations. Highly recommended.
Read information about the authorRichard Evans Schultes (SHULL-tees) (January 12, 1915 – April 10, 2001) may be considered the father of modern ethnobotany, for his studies of indigenous peoples' (especially the indigenous peoples of the Americas) uses of plants, including especially entheogenic or hallucinogenic plants (particularly in Mexico and the Amazon), for his lifelong collaborations with chemists, and for his charismatic influence as an educator at Harvard University on a number of students and colleagues who went on to write popular books and assume influential positions in museums, botanical gardens, and popular culture.
His book The Plants of the Gods: Their Sacred, Healing, and Hallucinogenic Powers (1979), co-authored with chemist Albert Hofmann, the discoverer of LSD, is considered his greatest popular work: it has never been out of print and was revised into an expanded second edition, based on a German translation by Christian Rätsch (1998), in 2001.
