From the Back Cover:

Fermentation and plant use--as medicine, as psychotropics, as teachers, as companions on life's path--are an inescapable part of our exploration of what it means to be human. Thus, this book conflicts with a number of popular beliefs about alcohol, plants, and the nature of material reality. It is, therefore, not politically correct.

. . . The ancient beers, created . . . between 10,000 and 30,000 years ago, were quite different from what we know as beer today. Many were sacred beers, and hundreds contained medicinal herbs.--From the book

The author's beautiful and provocative exploration of the sacredness and folklore of ancient fermentation is revealed through 200 plants and hive products. Includes 120 recipes for ancient and indigenous beers and meads from 31 countries and six continents--and the most complete evaluation of honey ever published.

About the Author:

Stephen Buhner is an earth-centered contemplative and one of the most prominent and recognized practitioners of the sacred use of plants. His first book, Sacred Plant Medicine, was a finalist in the 1997 Small Press Magazine and Colorado Book Awards. His second book, One Spirit, Many Peoples, continues to be a controversial success. He lives in the Gaian Contemplative Community at Vision Mountain outside Spokane, Washington, and travels extensively to speak on sacred plant medicine and earth-centered spirituality.
