"Essential reading, a modern classic."
--Stephen Silberman, " Wired Magazine"
"The poet of plantsEPendel may be America's answer to Blake, Coleridge and Wordsworth...."
--Emily Green, "Los Angeles Times"
"Whereas all other drug encyclopaediaists are accompanied by excessive slyness, the seemingly free verse of Dale Pendell is constrained by compulsive accuracy, to paraphrase Zarathustra's "Hom Yost," by the (scruples) that drive forth truth."
--David Flattery, author of "Haoma and Harmaline"
"A beat alchemist working textual DJ decks."

About the Author

Plant student Dale Pendell established himself as one of the foremost popular exponents of shamanic ethnobotany with his unprecedented Pharmako trilogy. A noted poet, he was the founding editor of the avant-garde magazine Kuksu and a co-founder of the Primitive Arts Institute and has led workshops on ethnobotany and ethnopoetics for the Naropa Institute and the Omega Institute. Pendell was part of the Oracular Madness theme camp at Burning Man for a number of years (his book Inspired Madness: The Gifts of Burning Man was published by Frog Books in 2006). Also an experienced computer scientist, he lives in California's Sierra foothills. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
