- CONTENTS: The author relates how her pigeonholing tendencies
turned her toward mushroom taxonomy and elucidates the two
ultimate truths of mycology: (i) Mushrooms … are unique
and each one is different from the other; (ii) all unidentified
mushrooms are brown and drab, and each one looks like the
other. "It all began in the summer of 1970 when we purchased
six acres of field and forest. Brimming with pride of ownership,
I decided to Name everything on the property… Well,
I mused, if it had taken two days for trees and one year for
flowers, then it should only take around six months to name
all those mushrooms and then move on. Well, I mused wrong."
