Editorial Reviews


"Richard Schultes is a true ethnobotanist, the incarnation and almost the inventor of this discipline ... Where the Gods Reign is a picture book, ... of great beauty and tranquility ... full of fascinating information." --Sir John Hemming, Times Literary Supplement

"Where the Gods Reign is a magnificent book by one of the greatest Amazon explorers of this century -- a must for the library of any Amazon oriented person."

--Sir Ghillean Prance, Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew.

"The numerous photographs are at once spectacular, beautiful, fascinating, and of excellent quality ... It is likely that only Professor Schultes has had or ever will have the resources to produce such ... a remarkable book."

--Willard Van Adsall, Journal of Ethnobiology
