    Abstract

    A book about hallucinogenic plants written by two such authors as these can be expected to be a truly authoritative work and this is. Dr. Schultes, who is a professor of biology at Harvard University, has spent most of his career in ethnobotanical studies and has acquired a uniquely outstanding knowledge of the use of various botanical species for “magic,” witchcraft, and religious ritual by primitive tribes in South America. This experience has been acquired through a more than twelve-year residence among these tribes.
