Wild Mushrooms

A Taste of Enchantment

contents / intro

An irreverent yet irrefutable guide to mushroom hunting by America's fav philosoforager, Alan Muskat. Its 42 illustrated pages address the most common misconceptions about mushrooms as well as many questions left unanswered by the top-selling mushroom ID books. Note that this is not an ID book: the only good "field guide" is one with two legs.

This edition is included with our full-length tours and is also available below. A 150-page second edition, with a foreword by Dr. Andrew Weil, will be available Summer 2018.
