Synopsis

When Margaret De Wys learned she had breast cancer, the diagnosis shattered her comfortable life. To everyone's concern, she journeyed deep into the Amazon to work with Carlos, a charismatic Shuar master of medicina milenaria, an ancient mystical tradition with a highly sophisticated and precise technology of healing. In "Black Smoke", De Wys writes of her amazing encounter with Carlos as he guided her into a world of potent visionary plants, harrowing initiations and ritual purification - 'the path of the warrior'. At once an adventure story, a romance and a rich exploration of a little-known culture, "Black Smoke" is destined to become a classic. It captures one woman's physical, emotional and 'holy voyage' through a world that differs vastly from our own. And what emerges is a revealing chronicle of spiritual insight and a trenchant exploration of the limits of idealism.
