For thousands of years, in the jungles of the Amazon, shamans have passed on information about the medicinal values of rain forest plants from one generation to the next. This book tells the story of one tribe who learned the importance of their own knowledge about the healing properties of the rain forest. It is based on a true story first told in the book Tales of the Shaman's Apprentice by Mark Plotkin.
