Great book to expose yourself to the diversity of the fungal Kingdom. Covering biology, organic chemistry, mushroom hunting, cultivation, dyeing, lichen, and much more.

If you want to learn more about wild edible mushrooms and plants, check out @mnforager on instagram and Ironwood Foraging Co. on facebook and at IronwoodForaging.com
