Black Smoke: A Woman’s Journal of Healing,
Wild Love, and Transformation in the Amazon

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 “holy voyage” through a world

that differs vastly from our own in its perception of healing and wholeness. And what emerges

is a revealing chronicle of spiritual insight and a trenchant exploration of the limits of idealism.

Not only does Margaret De Wys offer a probing look at how our modern technological culture

can learn and benefit from indigenous wisdom, but she also weaves a cautionary tale about

how potentially dangerous it is—on both sides—to try to cross those frontiers.

(Sterling, 2009;a Peekamoose Book)
