Food of the Gods explores archaeology, anthropology, early religion, and pre-historic goddess cultures to present a shocking new theory of the birth of human consciousness, language, spirit and culture. McKenna believes that the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge that separated humans from their fellow beasts was a hallucinogenic mushroom. Illustrated.
