Poisons and Panaceas: Plants Tell History of Healing
You know you’re good at what you do when even the Poison Control center seems to think no one would know better.
One night years ago, Balick was up late going through some old materials that he had collected in the field when he stuck himself with a curare dart from the Amazon.
