Summary
"From his travels to study the mysteries of sacred plants and the heart of cultures, renowned anthropologist Wade Davis returns with stories that eloquently describe many different ways of thinking, living and being. But traditional peoples who live in remote places--the Canadian Arctic and the deserts of North Africa, the rain forests of Borneo and the Amazon, the Andes and the mountains of Tibet, the swamps of the Orinoco, the wilds of British Columbia and the surreal cultural landscape of Haiti--now face the danger of losing their ways of life, a blow to the richness of human diversity."-- Book jacket
