The comic amnesiac hero, Concho, awakes in the middle of a Texas wasteland only to be confronted by a talking snake. The chatty, lipsy serpent, of Garden of Eden fame has some big news for Concho; an immense asteroid is hurtling toward Earth, and they'd better get to Washington, pronto, and somehow save the world. Thus begins one of the oddest and most hilarious road shows that takes them through every scenic attraction and distraction America has to offer, including a religious theme park in North Carolina, a New Age community in Missouri, right up to the steps of the White House. But the President-- not to mention his entire government-- aren't even on the planet! Written in the tradition of Kesey, Robbins, and Brautigan, "Footprints of the Garden Snake" gives now meaning to Original Sin and a whole new spin on the Book of Genesis.
