Format: Paperback
An excellent book! De Rios explains how the visionary vine (aka ayuschua) is used in Peru/Amazon areas. First she describes the history of halligens that have been used since ancient times for medicinal purposes and for rituals. She explains how the US forbids the use of drugs for such reasons and explains why it is accepted in other countries. She explains the ethnology/demographics of the Peruvians which sheds a lot of light on why these people turn to the visionary vine in times of distress/illness or for other ritual purposes. This is a fabulous book and a must read for anyone who loves anthropology and ethnobotony!
