The Mushroom Hunters by Langdon Cook is the book selected for October. We will meet on Monday, October 24, from 3:30 – 5:00. Contact Jean at firstname.lastname@example.org to RSVP and find out location.
A timely book, as fall is “mushroom season” in the Northwest, when the rains begin.
Author Langdon Cook embeds himself in the underground world of “frontier-style capitalism” to reveal the shadowy subculture that brings the highly valued culinary ingredient–-wild mushrooms–-to the tables and restaurants of modern America. Part science, part suspense, part culinary history–-who would have ever thought an adventure book could be written about wild fungi? The setting of the book is the Pacific Northwest, including the Olympic Peninsula.
