In a provocatively packaged work, Andy Letcher provides historical
accounts of the use of magic mushrooms (psylocibe [Note from JWA, Psilocybe] varieties as well as agaric),
re-examines many of the outlandish ancient accounts of magic mushroom use made
during the 60's, details the current usage of magic mushrooms among trippers
and shamans alike, and even recounts such recent occurrences such as the arrest
of "Professor Fanaticus" Robert McPherson.
A transporting read that grounds itself in solid references at every step of the way.
A must for anyone interested in the topic.
