Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Join the hunt for one of the most sought-after mushroom marvels---the elusive morel

"Michael Kuo offers an engaging survey of a diverse group of fungi whose fruiting bodies are among the most prized edible mushrooms. Morels is a lavishly illustrated poem that will be relished by amateur and professional mycologists alike."

---Nicholas P. Money, author of Mr. Bloomfield's Orchard: The Mysterious World of Mushrooms, Molds, and Mycologists

Filled to the brim with information about the science and sport of finding, identifying, and savoring these world-renowned fungi, Morels is a far-ranging, reader-friendly book about one of America's most popular and passionately pursued outdoor activities.

Author Michael Kuo brings years of morel-hunting experience to Morels, delivering detailed information in an engaging, readable style to seasoned morel hunters and beginners alike.

Morels includes extensive information on the art of hunting morels and on current scientific knowledge regarding these delectable fungi. In addition, Kuo compiles easy-to-understand information on the latest scientific research into morels, from studies into how they grow to DNA-based classification of species.

With over two hundred color photographs.

Book News Annotation:

How many of us owe our passion to the University of Michigan Press classic Mushroom Hunter's Field Guide by Alexnder Smith? Kuo's comprehensive monograph on a foolproof fungus of outstanding flavor should bring more pickers into the fields (alas). Kuo lives & hunts in Illinois and runs a great site for serious amateurs (mushroomexpert) which solicits comment from and gives advice to all of N. America. His book will stand alone for years as the authority on natural history and gathering. He covers false morels, habitats, hunting and feasting, the addicts, theory—wise & looney—including speculation on culture of this mysterious delight. Heavily and expertly illustrated with color photos. A book of wide appeal.
