Herbs of the Northern Shaman
A guide to the Mind-Altering Plants of the Northern Hemisphere
A nicely produced reference book for anyone interested in the use of psychoactive herbs. The herbs covered range from the obvious ones such as Fly Agaric, Magic Mushrooms, Mandrake, Thorn Apple and Vervain to more obscure herbs like corydalis, hawkweed, periwinkle and saffron, to name but a few.
Each of the 65 herbs covered is treated to illustrations, information about the botanical qualities, psychoactive use and links to myths and deities. If you are looking to increase your knowledge of the qualities and uses of such herbs, as the publishers do emphasise they are not responsible for misuse of the information contained within its pages.
