4,000 years of Aphrodisiacs, Stimulants, Analgesics, Depressants, Anesthetics, Hallucinogenics

All these and more are explained and their use described, using relevant data and background information culled both from ancient records and recent publications, eyewitness accounts and case histories.

Here is a unique compilation of Mexican botanical drug use, from ancient Mayan and Aztec civilizations to the present: four millenia of plunder, destruction, obscurity, ostracism--and survival!
