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.
