Ancient shamanic practice compelled the magician-healer first to make contact with the spirit of the plant to ask for its help before administering the herbal cure. This practice is alive today in Mexico among the traditional Indian shaman healers-principally the elder Huichol Indian shaman and plant spirit healer Don Guadalupe Gonzales Rios. Elliot Cowan reveals these ancient practices and guides the reader in the effective use of the wild herb plants in the area in which he or she lives. the result is a wonderful psychic and spiritual approach to holistic healing

Traditional healers use plants in their techniques; but Cowan learned that leaves and plant parts are relatively ineffectual: he maintains that it's the spirit of a plant that does the actual healing. Cowan contacts these spirits and asks for their help: his different herbal remedy method is imparted to readers, here. -- Midwest Book Review
