Great book and a quick read! This book provided a brief introduction to Peyote, it's legal debacles, and how it has impacted people's lives. The end also includes a tribute to Reuben Snake and a overview of the Native American Church.

I recommend this to anyone looking the learn the basics about Peyote.
