The McKenna Brothers are two of Paonia's illustrious, possibly infamous, hometown icons. Younger brother Dennis is an ethnobotanist. His older brother Terence, who died in 2000, was known for his books on psychedelics and the nature of consciousness, with such titles as "True Hallucinations and The Archaic Revival: Speculations on Psychedelic Mushrooms, the Amazon, Virtual Reality, UFOs, Evolution, Shamanism, the Rebirth of the Goddess and the End of History."

For this week's Local Motion, Marty Durlin speaks with Dennis McKenna about his book, "The Brotherhood of the Screaming Abyss," which tells the story of the brothers' life together, beginning in Paonia.
