Kostoglotov…

Kostoglotov himself,the discoverer and expounder of it all, had no-one in Russia he could ask to look for the fungus…He could not imagine any greater joy than to go away into the woods for months on end, to break of this chaga, [birch fungus] crumble it, boil it up on a camp fire, drink it and get well like an animal.
