Mycophilia: Revelations from the Weird World of Mushrooms

by Eugenia Bone Author

Packed with history, science, and lore about the use of mushrooms as a food, medicine, drug, and poison, this book does justice to its quirky and unique subjects. The author's curiosity, fascination, and appetite are contagious as she embarks on a journey through the wild world of mushrooms and mushroom lovers. Initially hoping to learn to gather gourmet mushrooms without paying sky high NYC farmers market prices, she joined an amateur mycological society and got hooked. She generously shares what she learned in this fun and readable book.
