Not Dorothy’s – she never let those Ruby Slippers off her feet. Even as she slept. Not Cinderella’s. Her missing shoe by all accounts these days, was made of glass (though the proper pronunciation of the word in Perrault’s telling translates as squirrel fur).
Today’s sturdy find, a concretion, is fashioned from a mineral cement – and a bit of earthen magic – that works the clay cliffs here night and day.
