Leaving behind a sheltered, high-society lifestyle as a Mexican teenager desperate to understand his place in the universe, the author embarks on a majestic entheogenic pilgrimage, as he becomes a modern-day Carlos Castaneda, guiding spiritual explorers to the powerful peyote cactus in one of the most sacred land in the world: the deserts of Real de Catorce.
Continuing his quest under the tutelage of many different entheogens, he grows even more determined to find the most powerful source of healing energy in the natural world. Eventually he uncovers — in the secretions of the Sonoran Desert toad — the most profound healer of all: 5-MeO-DMT, the God molecule.

"Move over, ayahuasca. Looks like the magic toad ride is the next big thing for entheogenic explorers"
-- Don Lattin, bestselling author of The Harvard Psychedelic Club.
"The author has had an astounding and intense life that he shares in his gentle and honest story. Most serious psychedelic explorers remain fixated on the psychedelic that first opened them to larger consciousness. Few people have had as much, as varied, and as meaningful psychedelic experiences. Given the sheer volume of his experiences, as he himself says, most people would've become insane. Instead, he became a practicing physician and now divides his time between his medical practice and helping people make the best possible use of the short acting, most powerful entheogen, 5-MeO-DMT. His teaching is a gift, as is this book about it."
