    One thought on “Peyote Religion: A History”

    1. Peyote is a sacred entheogenic and endangered plant which has a long and rich religious tradition around it in the Americas This book is a very well researched guide to the history of peyote use throughout North America from it s multicultural use and ceremonies both white colonizer and indigenista , to the controversies and racist criminalization by the US Federal government 4 stars very important book on the topic, but the writing is a bit academic.

    2. I appreciate all of the work Stewart dedicated to the subject, although it was a bit dry for my taste However, it is an essential read if you want to learn about peyote and the history of the NAC.
