-- Peter Valder, renowned plantsman and author
"With elegant prose, building on detailed research in the literature and in the field, this beautiful book engagingly dispels the confusion surrounding the taxonomy of this remarkable group of plants. It not only brings current knowledge together in a refreshingly original way but also - just as importantly - points up what we still do not understand about the biology of these enigmatic plants."
-- David Mabberley, Royal Botanic Gardens & Domain Trust, Sydney, and University of Oxford, UK
"Congratulations: the account of shamanic use of Brugmansia is an outstanding piece of scholarship."
-- Michael Harner, President, Foundation for Shamanic Studies
