Shroom author Andy Letcher has a wonderful story at his blog The Bosky Man called The Story of Stories, featuring my favorite mushroom.
“She found a silver birch tree, then spat on the ground near its roots. Six crawbreads came up one by one. She picked them and laid them out in the sun to dry. When they were like little cakes, wrinkled and red, she gave them to him in a leather bag and sent him on his way.”
