Book Description n.p: Henry Holt and Co., 1940. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. No Jacket. 1st Edition. xiv, 369. The author, an ethnobotanist, and his wife spent ten years among the native people in the Amazonian basin of Ecudador. This book is one of the results of that experience. He does not reveal the exact location of his "ranch" or use real names or give revealing information about the people he met, but the book is chock full of interesting details about the jungle and the people's lives. Particularly, he launches on a quest to find out more about the source of (and collect) the poisons employed in the blow-dart arrows used in hunting and in warfare and defense by these tribes. The poison is found in extracts from various plants commonly called "curare;" it has a muscle-weakening effect and in a high enough dose is fatal. Gill was not the first to appreciate the possibilities for benign medical use nor was he involved in its development, but in fact it did become a useful drug especially as an anethestic (now superceded by other drugs). Hard cover with a photographic cover; map endpapers; black-and-white illustrations throughout; index; no dust jacket. Bookseller Inventory # 011616
