Navigating South American humor, floridly poetic ini and extensive sexual metaphor, Symington skillfully translates this Peruvian book, originally published in as the first part of a trilogy called The Invisible Colors.

Folklore, the iconography of the subconscious and cultural history all converge upon the iino in a psychological and physical jungle.

Calvo’s journeys took place during the s, when he traveled the depths of the Amazon in search of an interview with renowned sorcerer Ino Moxo. Descendants of the Inkas and other indigenous peoples, the aged Ino Moxo and the four other sorcerers the author encounters continue ancient traditions.

The Three Halves of Ino Moxo: Teachings of the Wizard of the Upper Amazon by César Calvo

Ino Moxo’s recollections, however, are not all pacific but include stories of fighting rapacious rubber barons, most notably the Fitzcarrald two brothers, Fermin and Delfin; Werner Herzog’s hero seems to be yet another. As part of a ritual to determine whether he is worthy to receive sacred understanding, Calvo undertakes an initiation into the mysteries with the help of an hallucinogen, ayawaska, the holy drug of sorcerers, which is supposedly responsible for inspiring significant portions of text.

When Manuel Cordova-Rios was 13 years old, a tribe of Amahuaca Indians kidnapped him; he adopted the name Ino Moxo Black Panther and eventually became high priest of the hallucinogenic powers of the ayahuasca plant used in religious ceremonies. Calvo’s quest to the inner sanctum of the shaman’s domain resembles the mystical journeys of Carlos Castenada.

More captivating than this autochthonous mythology are the scattered anthropological interludes of Amazon tribal life, like the treatise on the art of head-hunting. While the translation captures the oneiric, obtuse flavor of the original, it substitutes nontraditional spelling e. Keshwa for Quechua and stumbles over the proliferation of indigenous words, making the page glossary absolutely indispensable. An enlightening but nonessential purchase.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I loved this book, but it was very difficult to read because it was written in literal word-for-word Spanish to English translation.

I appreciated understanding how Amazonians speak, however, when translating from one language to the other, proper grammatical translation language should obligatorily be used. The first man was a woman”! Very interesting read indeed. I have not read it all because I have bad eyes and can really only read large amounts on my Kindle. This book has small print.

Manuel Córdova-Rios

The personal reaction and the descriptions bring you close to an ayahuasca vision. A glimpse into a world of magic. I’ve already it twice and will read it many times again. Don Jose Campos the great shaman says it is one of his favorite books and I agree. Anyone and everyone should read this book: One person found this helpful. I just jno get interested in the stories in this book.

Not what I expected. Difficult to read and enjoy. I can’t comment on the English version, as I haven’t read it yet, but I can comment on the story. This was a really interesting book. Not so much for the hallucinogenic part, but for a glimpse into life on the Amazon, and the myths and dream visions of the people there. The story line is sometimes hard to follow, as it sometimes jumps iho like dreams or poems do, but the end brings it all back together, read it.
