The word is out in my neighborhood that I like mushrooms, apparently, because a different neighbor came by this afternoon to offer me a book about identifying them. Mushrooms of North America by Orson K. Miller, Jr.
It's full of colorful illustrations. Maybe I can finally identify the mysterious ghostly white mushrooms Angela found last week growing on a fallen log.
My neighbor said her husband found a chanterelle while out hunting that was so huge one mushroom served her whole family!
