Wade Davis on Richard Evans Schultes

In the previous post, we introduced Richard Evans Schultes though a short video and excerpts of an interview conducted with him later in his life.

In this video, his student and protege Wade Davis goes much deeper into Schultes’ story.

Absolutely fascinating and excellent preparation for seeing the new movie “Abrazo de la Serpiente” (Embrace of the Serpent) – which I’ve now seen three times.

If this account of Schultes’s life by Wade Davis isn’t one of the most fascinating stories you’ve ever heard, I’d be very surprised.

It starts a little slow.

If you want to skip the introduction and get to the fireworks, fast forward to 8:20
