From the forageable to the bizarre, this book is an introduction to 50 of the fungi kingdom’s most interesting mushrooms.
Mushrooms have existed for millennia, which can make it overwhelming to dip into mycology. Used throughout human history for food, medicine, and expanding our consciousness, fungi have shaped the planet and the past, appearing everywhere from fairy tales and health-food stores to The X-Files.
There’s an entire universe of fungi, much of which is yet to be discovered. To teach you about the basics, Mushroom Magic features 50 types.
Flip through beautifully illustrated mushrooms and learn about their habitat, uses, and history to become a budding expert in mycology.
