Learn the secrets of shamans and medicine men. Retrace the thrilling explorations that revealed their ancient knowledge to the developed world. Sit at the knee of the man who brought their wisdom out of the jungle. In the 40s and 50s, when the Amazon was still a deeply mysterious, untracked region, Richard Evans Schulte followed the guidance of native experts tribal healers, shamans, mystics to find botanical treasure. For months at a time he combed the jungle, collecting thousands of samples and discovering plants unknown to the modern world, many of which produced fantastic chemical compounds with strong effects on our bodies... and our minds. In this ambitious feature-length documentary, renowned botanist, explorer and author Wade Davis ("The Serpent and the Rainbow") reconstructs the travels and discoveries of his great mentor Schulte, the Father of Ethnobotany.

Davis follows firsthand in Schultes footsteps throughout the video, from his early work with peyote to the discovery of "magic" mushrooms to his later involvement with rubber exploration for the US military. It's a great reminder how ahead of his time Schultes was, as an ethnobotanist, explorer, and professor. I've used this video in my classroom now for 3 years. After you see it, read One River.
