Chasing the Rain:
My Treasure Hunt for the World's Most Beautiful Mushrooms
by Taylor F. Lockwood

cover

A very special blend of travelogue and horticultural study, Chasing the Rain: My Treasure Hunt for the World's Most Beautiful Mushrooms by Taylor F. Lockwood is beautifully illustrated throughout with the author's simply gorgeous, full-color photography of an astonishing variety of mushrooms. The text offers fascinating and informative anecdotes about everything from having to dodge deadly snakes in China, to warding off swarms of mosquitoes in Borneo, to outsmarting a band of monkeys in Bali, to hunting for mushrooms at 14,000 feet in Tibet's thin air, to the difficulties of finding mushrooms in drought-stricken Europe. The culmination (to date) of his passionate appreciation for mushrooms and other fungi, Chasing the Rain is also an account of the connection felt by people who, like esthetic mycologist Taylor Lockwood, hunt the mushrooms of the world. A joy to page through and a highly recommended addition to personal, academic, and community library collections, Chasing the Rain is as entertaining as it is informative. (James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review)

The Wild Mushroom
by George McCarthy

cover

This book is a celebration of the beauty of the fungi. The Wild Mushroom contains the some of the best mushroom photographs I have seen in a book (at least until Taylor published his book, see above). I must admit, I have not read the text, but the photographs are intended to be the centerpiece here and they alone are worth the price of admission.
