If you are looking for a book about the Amazon, this is not it. There is very little about the Amazon or the Amazon basin in this book. It's more of a personal diary of a guy who feels despondent and thinks a sojourn to Peru to spend time with a shaman and partaking in ayahuasca ceremonies will heal him. This story could have just as easily taken place in the guy's backyard.
