'Our Lady of the Forest' by David Guterson

The girl's errand in the forest that day was to gather chanterelle mushrooms in a bucket to sell in town at dusk. According to her own account and the accounts of others in the North Fork Campground who would later be questioned by the diocesan committee, by Father Collins of Saint Joeseph's of North Fork, by the bishop's representative, and by reporters covering the purported apparitions - including tabloid journalists who treated the story like a visitation by Martians or the birth of a two-headed infant - the girl left her camp before eight o'clock and walked alone into the woods.
