The Revision

When the book Plants of the Gods first appeared in 1979, it was a milestone in ethnobotany and ethno-pharmacology. The book inspired and influenced many young researchers around the world and encouraged them to continue in their own work. Because of this there have been some new discoveries about the plants of the gods. Many questions about the activity and constituents of psychedelic plants have been clarified. I have tried to incorporate the new information in a way that preserves the original character of the book and reflects the current state of knowledge. I hope that the plants of the gods retain their valuable position in our world and that they reach the many people upon whom the sacredness of nature is dependent.
