So entwined is the history of the coca plant with that of the Inca race that the author has devoted fully half his work to a descriptive analysis of their civilization to the present. Romance and adventure fill these pages as well as scientific accounts of the plant itself, botanical and chemical analyses, and the results of medical experimentation. The thereapeutic value of coca and its preparation is discussed at great length. The bibliography consists of some 550 entries which the author consulted in the writing of his book.
