Format: Hardcover
I found this book quite by accident. It is informative and has some interesting history. There were plants that even I had never heard of. I recomend this book who is interested in all aspects of Botany and even some history. I also recomend that anyone who has this book to use the information wisely. There is far too much value in books such as these for the information to be wasted

I had heard about Dr. Emboden's book from several sources, but it is very difficult to find (out-of-print). So when I was able to locate a source, I snapped it up at once. Like Dale Pendell's Pharmacopoeia, Dr. Emboden's thorough research combined with the photographs and easy to understand writing style, presented not only the plants but also their histories -- along with the oral histories (common myths) of the indigenous peoples -- in a way that was both comprehensive as well as informative. I would like to thank the Seller for making this copy of Dr. Emboden's "tome" available.

Format: Paperback
This book is a fantastic reference of plants and their narcotic properties. The scope is very broad and you would be hard pressed to find any plant missing, domestic and foreign. Filled with photos, history, geography, uses and customs, and active ingredients and their effects on the body.

In 1984 at age 14 I found this book in my Junior High school library and it found it's way home with me. I basically memorized it and thus began a very long experiment. I'm pretty sure I have barfed up almost everything in this book once upon a youth. It's nice knowing how psychoactive the spice aisle is.
