Ayahuasca Reader : Encounters With the Amazon's Sacred Vine
This book is a panorama of texts translated from nearly a dozen languages on the ayahuasca experience, including indigenous mythic narratives and testimonies, religious hymns, as well as stories related by western travellers, scientists and writers who have had contact with ayahuasca in different contexts. In addition to contributions from Wade Davis, Dennis McKenna and Richard Spruce, this new edition includes essays from Graham Hancock, Jeremy Narby, Susana Bustos, Michael Winkelman and a new section on ayahuasca art. This backlist classic, also, includes contributions from leaders of the global ayahuasca movement, making this the most up-to-date collection of authoritative writings on the subject ever published, an essential reference for anthropology, ethnobotany and Latin American literature studies.
