Descrizione prodotto


Hailed by Huffington Post contributor Joel Hirst as a compelling and powerful story, Plant Teacher begins in 1972 when a hippie in Oakland, California flushes a syringe of LSD down a toilet. Thirty-five years later, the wayward drug paraphernalia has found its final resting place in Los Yungas, Bolivia, the umbilical cord between the Andes and Amazonia.

Enter into this picture two young Americans, Cheryl Lewis, trying to forge her future in La Paz and Martin Banzer, trying to come to terms with his past in the same city. The two form an unlikely friendship against the backdrop of a country teetering at the brink of dictatorship and revolution.

Bolivia sparks the taste for adventure in both young people and Martin finds himself experimenting with indigenous hallucinogenic plants while Cheryl flits from one personal relationship to another. Meanwhile, the syringe buried in the silt in a marsh in Los Yungas will shape their destinies more than either could anticipate or desire.

Plant Teacher takes its readers on a fast-paced tour from the hippie excesses of Oakland, to the great streams of the Pacific Ocean and the countryside, cities, natural wonders and ancient ruins of Bolivia. It reveals the mundane and the magical, and, along the way, readers glimpse the lives of everyday Bolivians struggling to establish equanimity or merely eke out a living during drastic political crisis.


Ellen Alderton, writing as Caroline Alethia, is a professional writer whose work has been published in newspapers, magazines, web outlets, and broadcast on radio. Her words have reached audiences on six continents. She lived in Bolivia and was a witness to many of the events described in Plant Teacher.

5.0 su 5 stelle Loved this book 9 marzo 2012

I subscribe to a service that sends out the first chapter or so of a book and that is how I discovered Plant Teacher. Intrigued by the first few pages, I bought the book. It is a fantastic read, reminiscent of the early Armistead Maupin (Tales of the City series) and Joan Didion's early works. Set in Bolivia, the book traces a few months in the lives of a handful of Americans living in Bolivia but is much deeper than that sentence would imply. There is an underlying story of the inter-connectiveness of everything. This is an excellent well-written book and one that I will remember for a long time to come.

Read it today.

I was recently in Peru and wanted to read Andean related stories. I happened on this while browsing Amazon. I enjoyed getting to know the various characters and felt for them. She writes well about an interesting time and place.

I found this book well written. Understanding magical realism, the author used instead the after-effects of a bad drug experience to lend power to her story. It was well written and addressed the complexities of Bolivian society with sophistication. But, most importantly, it was just a good fun read - couldn't put it down. Well done.

I am heading to Bolivia and wanted to read a novel set in the country, so in that sense the book was totally worth reading. The story was engaging, but it jumped around a bit too much, and honestly, the syringe could have been left out entirely---certainly no need to begin the whole book that way. I almost gave up. But the story was interesting and the characters were eventually engaging, although it felt like I was reading a woman's writing during the guys' dialogue. That drives me nuts. If you're going to Bolivia, it's worth reading. If not.....

Difficult to follow. A bit silly. I found this on a list of best read books. I do not agree.
