This mesmerizing, surreal account of the bizarre adventures of Terence McKenna, his brother Dennis, and a small band of their friends, is a wild ride of exotic experience and scientific inquiry. Exploring the Amazon Basin in search of mythical shamanic hallucinogens, they encounter a host of unusual characters -- including a mushroom, a flying saucer, pirate Mantids from outer space, an appearance by James and Nora Joyce in the guise of poultry, and translinguistic matter -- and discover the missing link in the development of human consciousness and language.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Glimpse Into The Truth Terence comes through with this book. The first 20 pages were a little tough to get through but after that it was impossible to put the book down. What happened that year in the Amazon was extrordinary. This book is a must read for anyone who has ever dabbled with Psychedelics. You will be able to relate to his special experience in South America. After I read the book I too saw shooting stars at a special moment in my life. Read the book and find out what I mean. Terence you may not be with us on this earth anymore but in spirit and soul you will always be with us.
