Edible and Poisonous Mushrooms of the World
by Ian R. Hall, Steven L. Stephenson, Peter K. Buchanan, Wang Yun, Anthony L. J. Cole
2003-09-01
Edible and Poisonous Mushrooms of the World List Price: $39.95
Our Price: $30.36
Used Price: $20.77
Perhaps a unique, or at least a decidedly uncommon book. It is international: habitats are given in climatic rather than geographic terms. There's solid discussion of hosts and associated plants, 250 high quality color photos, un-hysterical warnings against toxic species, and a simple key to identification. The authors set their book apart by inclusion of a long section on commercial gathering (a kilo of grade one Tuber magnatum, the Italian white truffle, will fetch from $1,000. to $30,000.00), and a good introduction to commercial cultivation. Every serious mycology collection will require this fine reference.

Morel Tales: The Culture of Mushrooming List Price: $19.95
Our Price: $19.95
Used Price: $9.75
Drawing on the observations of three years spent in the company of dedicated amateur mushroomers and professional mycologists, Gary Alan Fine explores the ways in which Americans attempt to give meaning to the natural world, while providing an eye-opening look inside the cultures they construct around its study and appreciation.
A landmark work of environmental sociology, Morel Tales is an engaging and instructive examination of a thriving community, one with its own language, ceremonies, jokes, narratives, rivalries, and social codes. Fine also provides a detailed discussion of the American phenomenon he calls "naturework"--that is, culturally constructing one's own place in the natural environment through communities with shared systems of assigned meaning.
