Summary, etc.: "Gathering edible wild food is a wonderful way to forge a connection to the earth. Mushrooms are the ultimate local food source; they grow literally everywhere, from Central Park to your own backyard. The Complete Mushroom Hunter invites readers to connect with a hobby that will enrich their understanding of the natural world and build an appreciation for an ancient, critically relevant, and useful body of knowledge. Here, amateur mycologists and mushroom enthusiasts will find a source and guidebook for their passion. Mushroom guru Gary Lincoff escorts the reader from the mushroom's earliest culinary awakening, through getting started and equipped for mushroom forays, to preparing and serving the fruits of the foray, wherever you live. This is the only mushrooming book that treats you to the not-so "underground" hobby of mushroom hunting and gathering."--pub. desc.
