Plants of the Gods: Their Sacred, Healing, and Hallucinogenic Powers Paperback – 11 January 2001
"Carefully researched, beautifully written, and abundantly illustrated, this book reminds us that the use of hallucinogenic plants has been a fundamental part of the human experience for millennia." ― Michael R. Aldrich, Ph.D., Curator Fitz Hugh Ludlow Library
"It contains an incredible amount of rigorous and fascinating information in a highly accessible, beautiful, and compelling format." ― Journal of Scientific Exploration, October 2003
"Richard Evans Schultes has been the nexus of almost everything interesting and supportive concerned with economic and cultural uses of plants. Plants of the Gods gives precise and illuminating portraits of the many peoples of the Earth who pay homage to and gain insights with the aid of psychedelic plants: an exquisite, thoroughly scholarly book." ― Whole Earth Review
