Experience the awesome beauty of the rainforest! Searching for secret knowledge in the exotic world of the Amazon . . . David Abravanel, an American physician, travels to the Peruvian Amazon to pursue research on rainforest plants that may be useful to treat psychiatric conditions and physical pain. With his mentor, aging jungle botanist Bart Campbell, he embarks on an expedition to learn the plant medicine secrets of an Amazonian "lost tribe," the A'i'tian'tesi. Trouble lurks around every bend in the trail! The obstacles in their way--an evangelical missionary who wants to westernize the tribe, groups of tourists including a convention of alternative healers who run the gamut from the respectable to the half-mad, and a less-than-friendly, mysteriously powerful A'i'tian'tesi shaman who holds his knowledge in a dangerously tight grip-- make their mission difficult and dangerous. What they learn changes David forever. Mysterious tribes, beautiful women, dangerous wildlife, ancient spirituality, hallucinogenic rituals, and a vision quest! The Last Sorcerer: Echoes of the Rainforest immerses you in the enigmatic world of the rainforest and the beautiful intricacies of Amazonian life with its unique flora, fauna, and human and spiritual issues. This is an expedition that is not to be missed!
