Volunteer Book Review
the cornerstone of our approach to ethnobotanany overall, and ethnobotanical medicines in general:
Due to prohibition, nature often finds itself an "externality" of the drug war. Certain chapters of this book are required reading for the classes we offer @ ECfES.org for good reason. Much can be understood about people living under the Controlled Substances Act of 1970 thru an ethnobotanical lens.. We call this area of discourse "The Ethnobotany of Prohibition". Millions of Americans now cultivate relationships with some of Nature's most healing plants, however clouded their experience remains, under the "umbrella" drug war which hovers overhead, despite the slow societal progress on these matters.
We invite readers to experience the tactile difference between e-book reading through the "digital" screen and checking out this gorgeous, uniquely-sized book printed by Timber Press that lends itself to an exceptional reading experience. A paper quality of curious composition invites readers deeper still. See you in class!
