'The Cocaine Eaters is the record of  the travels of two young Englishmen, still in their twenties, among the South American Indians of Colombia; among peoples who will soon become extinct or whose way of life will change as modern civilization takes over.  The tribes they visited show astonishing diversity : the Noanama living up the rain-soaked delta of the Rio San Juan; the remote Amazonian Tukano cultivating the narcotic coca and adapting their lives to their addiction; the long-haired mountain Kogi living by the rules of their priests as the relics of a civilization dating from before the conquistadores; the nomad Guajiro on their arid peninsula; and the aggressive Motilon of the cloud-forest.'
