"Wade Davis, a Harvard-educated ethnobotanist, believes humanity's greatest legacy is the 'ethnosphere,' the cultural counterpart to the biosphere, and 'the sum total of all thoughts and dreams, myths, ideas, inspirations, intuitions brought into being by the human imagination since the dawn of consciousness.' He beautifully articulates the intellectual, emotional and moral reasons why it's in everyone's best interest to preserve the world's cultures."
