Foraging for wild mushrooms is an increasingly popular pursuit and this beautifully produced volume--filled with insights, anecdotes and details about more than 120 common and charismatic fungi from across the northern hemisphere--will appeal to everyone from beginner mushroomers to advanced mycophiles. Mushrooming offers a new perspective on the fascinating, edible, deadly and strange world of fungi, from candy caps to earth stars, puff balls to poison pie, prized chanterelles, morels, hedgehogs and the bloodless destroying angel. There are mushrooms named after fairies and demons, little brown mushrooms that are wildly hallucinogenic, phallic specimens prized as aphrodisiacs, and mushrooms that are the colour of precious jewels. Some mushrooms look so much like woodland birds they are shot at by hunters, and others, incredibly, glow in the dark. Walk along with award-winning artist and educator Diane Borsato and illustrator Kelsey Oseid as they inspire foragers at all levels to see the wondrousness of fungi wherever they are: in the forest, the city park or the local market. Learn how mushrooming can radically expand our perspectives, connect us to nature and quietly enrich our lives.
