I heard him speak at the University of Florida several years back. For a guy who did so much for people interested in Ethnobotany, and hallucinogens, he wasn't very interested in the people. He actually was VERY DISINTERESTED in talking about plant hallucinogens at all. None the less, he will be missed.

The book is called "One River." It is by Wade Davis, author of the Serpent and the Rainbow, of which Wes Craven made a BS movie about Wades Discoveries in Voodoo medicines and Snuffs.

Of couse Dick Schultes other books are fascinating, hallucinogenic Plants: A Golden Garden Guide; Botany and Chemistry of the Hallucinogens and Plants of the Gods, both Co-Authored by Alber Hofmann, the father of LSD.

The Healing Forests, Vines of the Soul and Where the Gods Rain, all about the Amazon.

Dick Schultes was the Greatist Explorer botanist of the last Centrury, following in the footsteps of Sir Richard Burton.

He was also the Worlds leading expert on Rubber and on Orchids, as well as arrow poisons.

He has a two millon acred land tract in the Amazon named in his honor. He spent 14 years in the Amazon and collected more than 22,000 plants new to science including about 35 used as entheogens in the Amazon.

What an amazing man. He was also an expert on Cannabis.

Have a shroomy day,

mj

Have a shroomy day and may all of your days be shroomy.

yeh thanx, i read it a while back and forgot the title, netherless a great book, i tried looking for the other ones at my library but no luck,

"He was also an expert on Cannabis" i think it mentions that he used the fact that there were 3 diff species of cannabis to get many students out of jail.

this topic isn't getting as much reponces as it should, either very few new bout schultes or bothered to learn about him, its rather sad. Little respect is being shown.

Thanks for the update. I for one was not aware of this. When my childhood friend Sam was working at M.I.T. as a geneticist, he became friends with Nick Schultes, Richard's son. Sam knew nothing about his friend's father's fame, but I flipped when he told me about going to Richard's home which was 'like a museum.' Another one bites the dust. RIP.

Hello Chonger,

Since you have already read "One River" I would like to give you some more references to some of the the other mushroom works of <b>DIck</b> Schultes. This is mostly his work on the shrooms (a few on peyote) and does not include many of his papers on the Banisteriopsis vines and snuffs.

XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Excerted from Allen, J. W. and J. Gartz. 2002, "Teonan?catl: A Bibliography of Entheogenic Mushrooms."


Schultes, Richard Evans. 1937a. Peyote and the plants used in the peyote ceremony. Botanical Museum Leaflets of Harvard vol. 4(8):136-137. April 12.

------. 1937b. Peyote (Lophophora williamsii) and plants confused with it. Botanical Museum Leaflets of Harvard vol. 5(5):69-73. November 19.

------. 1939. The identification of Teonan?catl, a narcotic basidiomycete of the Aztecs. Botanical Museum Leaflets of Harvard vol. 7(3):37-54. February 21.
The first scientific paper in modern times to describe the suspected use of entheogenic mushrooms by indigenous inhabitants of Mesoamerica. The grandfather of all subsequent studies.

------. 1940. Teonan?catl: The narcotic mushroom of the Aztecs. American Anthropologist vol. 42:429-443.
A further study by ethnobotanist Richard Evans Schultes provides numerous historical references regarding the Aztec use of the sacred mushrooms. These references were first described in many of the codices written by Spanish clergy and historians during and after the conquest. Noteworthy is the mis-identification of Panaeolus sphrinctrinus var. campanulatus as the teonan?catl mushroom of the Aztecs.

Hey everyone,

Have a pleasant time discovering the world of Richard Evans Schultes.

Did you know that Dick Schultes also carries a picture of a giant Amazonian cockroach in his wallet which also bares his name of Schultesii, named in his honor and when people would asked him if he had any children he would always show them the picture of the roach as a joke.

Also here is another biography of Schultes written before One River. This is taken from the New Yorker Magazine.

Kahn, E. J. 1992. (Mag.). Profiles: Jungle Botanist. New Yorker:35-58. June 1.
This biography traces the footsteps of the renown ethnobotanist Dr. Richard Evans Schultes from Harvard to his exploration of the Colombian Amazon and then back to Harvard. An amazing adventure in life. See Wade Davis.

Out of curiosity Gooney Bird with only five posts here at this forum, how and who do you express having sympathies for.

A newbie at that.

Please explaine yourself,

My goodness Mr. pulse, Royal Cock indeed. Hm! It took you all of 186 posts to figure that out. Geez, I just ask a question as to why Mr. Gooney bird made such a brisk statement and to what what was he refering to. I do not think that is too much to ask. But yes, I am exactly as you say.

This is suppose to be a mushroom forum for questions about mushrooms. Not about sarcasm.

and he responded to something and I was curious as to what he was referring to.
