Reviews/Excerpts >

From Phytomphalos:

Psychonauts or cosmonauts, they came from beyond the Milky Way, aboard Anaconda-Canoe, our primordial parents - the Desana call her Gahpi Mahso, or 'Caapi Woman' - ascending the mighty rivers of the Upper Amazon, fecund serpents of the soil, even to the hoary Rock of Nyi on the Pira-parana; there, on the Equator so they say... there, to people the planet.  From beyond the Milky Way they came, psychocosmonauts, Anaconda-Canoe-borne on Ahpikondia, the River of Milk, where the House of the Waters stood, there to people the planet.  Anaconda-Canoe also bore a precious, verdant cargo; exotic plants, some say, from beyond the Milky Way, just three - cassava, ipadu and caapi - to sustain our bodies, minds and spirits.

Here is the real Trinity, of this we can be certain; for our lives, like most life on this planet, hang on threads of plants, greent leafy lifelines 'twixt planetary dust and stllar fire - not on the whims of some wizened, graybeard god, thronethralled. . . .
