"This work is a remarkable achievement. It successfully captures all aspects of a complex personality. Gordon Wasson was a wonderful mixture: part businessman, part adventurer, part scholar. He achieved more in each of these fields than most do in any one discipline. Sketching a life-size portrait of this intriguing man is no mean feat, but this work achieves that goal." (Dr. Mark J. Plotkin, author of Tales of a Shaman's Apprentice)
"R. Gordon Wasson's work on hallucinogenic mushrooms sparked the psychedelic movement: this varied collection includes contributions in the field of ethnobotany, comparative religion, and anthropology and offers a tribute to Wasson's research through new contemplations." (The Bookwatch)
Wasson (1898-1986) was an amateur mycologist whose scholarly writings on hallucinogenic mushrooms pioneered the field of ethnomycology. The essays herein were contributed by Wasson's close friends, colleagues, and family members, and are accompanied by a great variety of important photographs and drawings, many in color.
