2013 2013 2013 New book: <em>The Mushroom Hunters</em> by <strong><a href="http://langdoncook.com/">Langdon Cook</a></strong><br /><br />From the synopsis at <strong><a href="http://www.randomhouse.com/book/219407/the-mushroom-hunters-by-langdon-cook">Random House</a></strong>:<br /><blockquote class="tr_bq">Within the dark corners of America’s forests grow culinary treasures. Chefs pay top dollar to showcase these elusive and beguiling ingredients on their menus. Whether dressing up a filet mignon with smoky morels or shaving luxurious white truffles over pasta, the most elegant restaurants across the country now feature an abundance of wild mushrooms.<br /><br />The mushroom hunters, by contrast, are a rough lot. They live in the wilderness and move with the seasons. Motivated by Gold Rush desires, they haul improbable quantities of fungi from the woods for cash. Langdon Cook embeds himself in this shadowy subculture, reporting from both rural fringes and big-city eateries with the flair of a novelist, uncovering along the way what might be the last gasp of frontier-style capitalism.</blockquote>Note: "<em>The Mushroom Hunters</em> is a work of nonfiction.&nbsp;Some names and identifying details have been changed."<br> 2013 2013 2013 <br>New book: <em>The Mushroom Hunters</em> by <strong><a href="http://langdoncook.com/">Langdon Cook</a></strong><br /><br />From the synopsis at <strong><a href="http://www.randomhouse.com/book/219407/the-mushroom-hunters-by-langdon-cook">Random House</a></strong>:<br /><blockquote class="tr_bq">Within the dark corners of America’s forests grow culinary treasures.
