The book opens with an essay on (as Ott has coined) the "entheogenic reformation," referring to the return of entheogens to a place of importance in western history. Then Ott covers the history of ayahuasca specifically for the modern Western world beginning in 1851 when, as far as history tells, the pioneering botanist Richard Spruce became the first-known westerner to become aware of its existence.Read more ›
There follows a review of the literature on the plants containing ayahuasca-type enzyme inhibitors, and on plants which contain DMT and related entheogenic tryptamines. The resulting tables of more than 60 plants in each category document Ott's contention that there are at least 4000 possible combinations of plants which can yeild entheogenic potions like ayahuasca. These are the Ayahuasca Analogues of the book's title, and Ott's psychonautic experiments include several with such "analogues", as well as with pharmahuasca - the pure alkaloids in capsule form. A thorough index, twenty-one footnotes, nine tables and a detailed bibliography of 418 sources make this a valuable reference book, as well as Ott's personal logbook of his psychonautic "travels in the universe of the soul" with ayahuasca.
