This collection of essays honors the life and work of R. Gordon Wasson (1898-1986), the amateur mycologist whose eloquent scholarly writings on hallucinogenic mushrooms pioneered the field of ethnomycology. He also, inadvertently, helped pioneer the psychedelic movement of the 1960s when an article he published in Life Magazine in 1957 made the general public aware that such mushrooms existed. The essays herein were contributed by Wasson’s close friends, valued colleagues, and family members. These include: Wendy Doniger, Joan Halifax, Albert Hofmann, Michael Horowitz, Robert Demarest, Peter T. Furst, Weston La Barre, Terence McKenna, Jonathan Ott, Carl A. P. Ruck, and others. Also includes an essay by Wasson in regards to his childhood, and much more.
