Engelstalig., Dale Pendell continues the exploration of psychoactive plants begun in 'Pharmako/Poeia'. Ancient Greek herbalists use the terms 'pharmakodynamis' to refer to the intrinsic powers of plants. Pendell covers this topic and more in this new volume, as he charts a voyage around the world of plant teachers and allies. Applying poetry, chemistry. pharmacology, and a generous sprinkling of arcane lore, Pendell wends a stimulating course through the realms of plant powers, potions, and herbcraft. His is a unique adventure that arrives at last at the 'Ultima Thule' of that 'dangerous knowledge', which, in the words of Gary Snyder, is a formidable force against 'even more dangerous ignorance'..
