"This book's carefully researched information on the natural history, taxonomy, medicinal use, cultivation and ethnobotanical involvement of this singular genus of sumptuous garden plants, together with its ravishing photographs of both the species and the wealth of modern cultivars, will make everyone want to grow them."
-- 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
