For more than 25 years, renowned anthropologist and plant explorer, Wade Davis has travelled the world, studying the mysteries of sacred plants and celebrating the people who cultivate and use them. His passion as an ethnobotanist has brought him to the very heart of indigenous life in places as remote and diverse as the Canadian Arctic, the deserts of North Africa, the rainforests of Borneo and the Amazon, the swamps of Orinoco and the surreal cultural landscape of Haiti. In this title, Wade Davis presents 80 images from the many thousands of photographs he has taken over the course of his explorations. Setting the photographs in context, his evocative text looks at the ethnosphere (the wealth of human diversity) and what traditional cultures have to teach us about different ways of living and thinking - and shows us how the dangers facing the ethnosphere could diminish us all.
