The Cosmic Serpent: DNA and the Origins of Knowledge
By Jeremy Narby

When rain forest Shamans are asked how they know such an extraordinary amount about medicinal plants, they respond, as if it should be obvious, "The plants teach us." In this riveting book, anthropologist Jeremy Narby explores a vision he experienced after drinking ayahuasca, the "vine of the soul," which Shamans have used for healing and to acquire knowledge for thousands of years. He makes an astonishing connection between ancient Shamanistic beliefs and those of modern science.
