useful but mainly for people in mexico!
on 8 September 1999
This book contains lots of useful ! and informative information although it does tend to repeat itself at various points. Most of the book tends to concentrate on mexico and Central/Sth America giving first hand reports from shamen, anthropologists and using accounts from early European explorers. (Priests so your really going to get a all round view). The European info is terrible, scetchy and not at all well researched no mention of scottish mead, mushroom brews or anything. If you live in Sth America great but Europeans we'll have to write our own book. See you in the Dam !!
