Editorial Reviews

Review

“A poet, ethnobotanist, and amateur chemist, he’s the best writer on drugs to come along since the late Terence McKenna.”
The Village Voice
 
“Dale Pendell, most elegant eloquent writer on drugs because both scientist and poet, has exuded a book as charming as The Compleat Angler or Brillat-Savarin’s Physiology of Taste. It will be preserved amongst the scriptures of an entheogenic revival that will recognize the scribe Pendell as an inspired prophet and forerunner.”
—Hakim Bey
 
“Dale Pendell’s books are elegant tapestries of accurate chemistry, pharmacology, and botany, interwoven with rich poetical imagery. I use them as textbooks in a large annual undergraduate class which I teach at the University of California in Berkeley. The students love them.”
—David E. Presti, PhD, Department of Molecular and Cell Biology, UC Berkeley

About the Author

Plant student Dale Pendell established himself as one of the foremost popular exponents of shamanic ethnobotany with his unprecedented Pharmako trilogy. A noted poet, he was the founding editor of the avant-garde magazine Kuksu and a cofounder of the Primitive Arts Institute and has led workshops on ethnobotany and ethnopoetics for the Naropa Institute and the Omega Institute. Pendell was part of the Oracular Madness theme camp at Burning Man for a number of years (his book Inspired Madness: The Gifts of Burning Man was published by Frog Books in 2006). Also an experienced computer scientist, he lives with his wife Laura in California’s Sierra foothills.

Once again, a brilliant and creative trip through the jungle.

For mad men and women only.

Dale Pendall is not only a prolific writer educating his audience using highly visual writing. He causes the reader to become inspired and immersed in his descriptive historical fact, scientific identification including biological chemistry and mysterious nature of mind altering plants. You will learn a great deal from his writings and I highly recommend both this tome as well as its companion. The informative and literary elements of Dale Pendall's ethnobotanical manuals should be used in university classes. They exemplify how knowledge can be taught in a both artistic and scientific fashion! A must have for the serious seeker.

These three books are beautiful.

Poetic, informative, sneakily subversive, and personal.

People looking for a straight textbook read might not like them as much, but I couldn't put them down.

This is an amazing rumination on the nature of psychoactive drugs. It's textile and cerebral simultaneously, gorgeously written, sometimes spooky. Buy it for sure.
