Mescaline: a global history of the first psychedelic explores its mind-altering effects across cultures from the ancient Americas to western modernity. From pre-Inca temple cults in the Andes to indigenous peyote use in Mexico, the Native American Church to the experiences of William James, Walter Benjamin and Hunter S. Thompson, it is an enthralling narrative of mescaline’s many lives.
