Whilst travelling through Latin America in 2009 and 2010, I had the opportunity to explore some of the jungles in Colombia, Brazil and Mexico - and maybe not so coincidentally, it was also around this time that I was put onto the work of Wade Davis. In his book One River, Davis chronicles the explorations of his mentor Richard Evans Schultes, the pioneering ethnobotanist who spent years trekking through the uncharted jungles of Mexico and the Amazon in the early 20th century, documenting his journey whilst in search of new species of plants and the indigenous people that used them.

Having collaborated with Albert Hoffman on the book Plants Of The Gods and credited as being an influence on William Burroughs and Allen Ginsberg, it comes as no surprise that it’s Schultes’ research on hallucinogens that has become his most widely recognised legacy. A small part of this is Schultes’ super-informative, and super-rare Golden Guide on Hallucinogenic Plants, which I discovered today via Boing Boing is now available as a PDF download here. In Schultes’ own words:

“Hallucinogenic plants have been used by man for thousands of years, probably since he began gathering plants for food. The hallucinogens have continued to receive the attention of civilized man through the ages. Recently, we have gone through a period during which sophisticated Western society has “discovered” hallucinogens, and some sectors of that society have taken up, for one reason or another, the use of such plants. This trend may be destined to continue. 

It is, therefore, important for us to learn as much as we can about hallucinogenic plants. A great body of scientific literature has been published about their uses and their effects, but the information is often locked away in technical journals. The interested layman has a right to sound information on which to base his opinions. This book has been written partly to provide that kind of information. 

No matter whether we believe that men’s intake of hallucinogens in primitive or sophisticated societies constitutes use, misuse, or abuse, hallucinogenic plants have undeniably played an extensive role in human culture and probably shall continue to do so. It follows that a clear understanding of these physically and socially potent agents should be a part of man’s general education.”
