The Book is called "Mushrooms of Northeast North America" by: George Barron. Well as much as I enjoy photographing these beautiful fungi I also would like to taste some of the fruits if you get me and the only thing this book says is details on how to identify it etc but then it has either Edible, or Poisonous. Only on the mushroom Psilocybe Semilanceata aka Liberty Caps does it tell me that it contains Hallucinogenic Compounds. But next to that fact it also labels it as poisonous, the question being do we have a compiled list of magic mushrooms etc vs non magic?
