One of the best known stories out of myth is that of the Garden of Eden; with its players of God, Adam and Eve, the sly serpent, and the ‘forbidden fruit’. Yet behind its captivating simplicity it holds a secret which is only to be uncovered through delving into the deep origins of human belief. These depths are explored for the first time in this revealing exposition of narrative progression which crosses paths of genre, subject, and discipline. Across continents and eons it collects the elements necessary to disclose the true nature of the garden story, while revealing a far more comprehensive view of human prehistoric religion and its link with the cosmos.
