 Richard Evans Schultes (1915–2001) spent twelve years in the Colombian Amazon during the 1940s and early 50s—exploring lands where no naturalist had ever been. He mapped uncharted rivers, lived among two dozen Indian tribes, and collected some 25,000 botanical specimens, including 300 new species and over 2,000 medicinal plants previously unknown to science. Schultes was the world's botanical authority on natural rubber and medicinal, toxic, and hallucinogenic plants. His photographs evoke an era when the tropical rainforests stood immense, and the peoples of the forest relied on plants not only for sustenance, but for medicinal and religious purposes as well.
