Plants of the gods : their sacred, healing, and hallucinogenic powers by Richard Evans Schultes( Book )

12 editions published between 1979 and 2001 in English and held by 497 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The use of hallucinogenic plants has been a part of human experience for millennia, yet modern Western societies have only recently become aware of the significance that these plants have had in shaping the history of diverse cultures. Capable of bringing human beings in closer touch with the spirit worlds, hallucinogenic plants have long been venerated as aids to mental health and as the sacred connection to the mystical. The authors of this definitive book examine the cross-cultural ceremonial and ritual use of many hallucinogenic substances. Profusely illustrated, this book contains an extensively researched plant lexicon, providing common and botanical names, history, ethnography, preparation, chemical components, usage in healing, and effects for 91 hallucinogenic plants
The lost Amazon : the photographic journey of Richard Evans Schultes by Wade Davis( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 452 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Richard Evans Schultes (1915-2001) was probably the greatest explorer of the Amazon, and regarded among anthropologists and seekers alike as the "father of ethnobotany." Taking what was meant to be a short leave from Harvard in 1941, he surveyed the Amazon basin almost continuously for twelve years, during which time he lived among two dozen different Indian tribes, mapped rivers, secretly sought sources of rubber for the US government during WWII, and collected and classified 30,000 botanical specimens, including 2,000 new medicinal plants. Schultes chronicled his stay there in hundreds of remarkable photographs of the tribes and the land, evocative of the great documentary photographers such as Edward Sheriff Curtis. Published to coincide with a traveling exhibition to debut at the Govinda Gallery in Washington, D.C., The Lost Amazon is the first major publication to examine the work of Dr. Schultes, as seen through his photographs and field notes. With text by Schultes's protege and fellow explorer, Wade Davis, this impressive document takes armchair travelers where they've never gone before

The journals of Hipólito Ruiz, Spanish botanist in Peru and Chile, 1777-1788 by Hipólito Ruiz( Book )

7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 183 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a historical find, the Journals are a remarkable document. Recounting the first of a series of Spanish expeditions to the New World, the story they tell is one of great sacrifice and hardship in the name of science. Bad weather, fatigue, and all the dangers of travel in the wilds were endured, as well as disasters including the death of artist Jose Brunete and the loss of a manuscript to fire. In the scientific realm, Ruiz's studies may be considered ground-laying work in the discipline of ethnobotany. By relating the uses of plants by natives, such as the extraction of quinine for the treatment of malaria, to his description of the plant in its native environment, Ruiz employed methods central to modern science

"This companion volume to Schultes' previous work is a superb collection of photos taken during 20 years of research in the Colombian Amazon. Thematically organized around the 'visionary vines' (banisteriopsis, ayahuasca), hallucinogenic plants and snuffs among native peoples, volume ranges widely over ethnobotany, shamanism, art, ritual, and natural phenomena in western Amazonia. Minimal text is accompanied by citations from other ethnographies"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 57

The film was inspired by the real-life journals of two explorers (Theodor Koch-Grünberg and Richard Evans Schultes) who traveled through the Colombian Amazon during the last century in search of the sacred and difficult-to-find psychedelic Yakruna plant
