"A merry, idiosyncratic guide, charmingly illustrated."--Eugenia Bone, The Wall Street Journal

An illustrated guide to over 100 types of mushrooms, offering insights and stories about these mysterious organisms

An incredible diversity of fungi is flourishing all around us, not just in the forest but in parks, markets, and even museums. Once you know how to look, you can find mushrooms named after fairies and demons, mushrooms that look so much like woodland birds they are shot at by hunters, mushrooms that glow in the dark . . . and so much more.

Beyond serving as a guide for identification, Mushrooming explores how "the quiet hunt" can radically expand our perspectives, connect us to nature, and enrich our lives. Whether you're a beginner forager or an expert mycophile, this is the perfect handbook to spark your curiosity and deepen your appreciation for the fantastic, delicious, deadly, and strange world of fungi.
