Abstract
When Michael Pollan set out to research how LSD and psilocybin (the active ingredient in magic mushrooms) are being used to provide relief to people suffering from difficult-to-treat conditions such as depression, addiction and anxiety, he did not intend to write his most personal book. But upon discovering how these remarkable substances are improving the lives not only of the mentally ill but also of healthy people coming to grips with the challenges of everyday life, he decided to explore the landscape of the mind in the first person as well as the third. Thus began an adventure into various altered states of consciousness, along with a dive deep into both the latest brain science and the thriving underground community of psychedelic therapists. Pollan sifts the historical record to separate the truth about these mysterious drugs from the myths that have surrounded them since the 1960s, when a handful of psychedelic evangelists inadvertently catalyzed a powerful backlash against what was then a promising field of research. - Website

Dr. Sterling Haynes practiced in Kamloops from 1967 to 1982.
"Beginning his medical practice in the wild frontier town of Williams Lake in the 1960s, the author has travelled the world as a doctor, an observer and an humanist. Stories of treating aboriginal people and white settlers in the Cariboo region join with stories of treating southern workers and Vietnam vets in Alabama and of travels in Central America to create a thought-provoking picture of the world today. Sterling Haynes was raised in central Alberta, graduated from the University of Alberta, served as a British Colonial officer in Nigeria and practiced medicine in British Columbia and Alabama."
