99 CENTS: In Search of Lady Ayahuasca by Zach Zimmerman

After dropping out of the University of Southern California and moving to Peru, twenty-one-year-old author Zach Zimmerman soon discovers that he no longer possesses any money. If he were normal, this is precisely the time when he would beg his parents for a flight home and return to school and/or get a job. Zach is not normal. Instead, he decides to board a one-way cargo ship heading deep into the Amazon rainforest. His goal: Search for signs of Lady Ayahuasca, the mythical “spirit of the jungle,” and determine whether or not she, in fact, exists.

As it turns out, Zach’s ill-conceived quest into perhaps the deadliest and most unpredictable region of the plant becomes, well, deadly and unpredictable. In this unfiltered, 93-page journal, the young author's guile and self-deprecatory humor will bring you to the edge of your seat as he confronts tarantulas, alligators, shamans, pretty Chinese girls, jungle guides who try to kill him, and much more, all in a search to find a spirit he doesn't actually believe in, and his insightful stream of consciousness regarding the nature of skepticism and spirituality will have you reflecting inward as you laugh outward.
