Summary
"Deep in the rain forests of Suriname, among remote tribes of Amerindians and 18th century African villages founded by escaped slaves, Dr. Mark Plotkin is racing against time to protect our future. New and fabulously effective medicines may be found in the Amazon's plant life, but the forest is disappearing. Even worse, the tribal shamans--healers and encyclopedias of rain forest botany--are the Amazon's most endangered species. The shaman's apprentice is the story of one scientist's quest to help Amazonians document and preserve their treasure house of life and culture"--Container
