Rochester, Vermont : Park Street Press, (2003). First edition - "An autobiographical account of the author's work with ayahuasca, a potent and sacred plant brew of the Amazon region that is known for its extraordinary visionary and healing powers. . . This book reveals the ritual protocols that must be followed prior to partaking of ayahuasca, including the traditional preparatory diet--which requires enduring austere conditions, isolation, and only small amounts of bland food before receiving the powers of the plant spirit from an ayahuasquero, a healing master--and the sacred songs, icaros, that are sung when imbibing the substance." The author has been initiated into shamanic knowledge of Q'ero Indians of Peru. Notes, bibliography. 229 pp. ISBN: 0-89281-1315.
