Synopsis: A celebration of the life and pioneering work of the eminent mycologist and scholar R. Gordon Wasson.

A legendary figure in the field of ethnobotany, R. Gordon Wasson's trail-blazing work on hallucinogenic mushrooms with the Mexican curandera Maria Sabina in the 1950s brought increased scholarly attention to the importance of psychoactive plants in the spiritual life of indigenous peoples and had a profound influence well beyond the academic world. His accessible writings helped popularize these discoveries, forming the ground for the social revolution of the following decade. With the growing interest in the role of psychoactive plants in society today, the work of R. Gordon Wasson and the example set by the man himself, so well illustrated here, takes on increasing importance.

Book Description: 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.
