There are few dreams more enticing than the fantasy of disappearing off the grid, living like a cryptid in a cozy cabin deep in the forest, and spending days foraging for mushrooms. Strange and beautiful, delicious and deadly, mundane and mystical, mushrooms capture our imagination and charm naturalists and artists alike. With common species names like Hotlips Disco, Silky Piggyback, and Angel of Death, the world of mushrooms is vast. Rounded puffballs release their spores at the slightest touch. Bracket fungi make shelf-like patterns up tree trunks, creating staircases for forest gnomes and elusive fae. The classic red umbrella of the Amanita brings bright color to the forest floor, and Veiled Lady mushrooms amaze with their delicate, white lace-like netting.
Whether you want to add mushrooms into your regular recipe rotation for a great meat-free alternative, harness the medicinal properties of fungi, or admire their natural beauty and the art they inspire, there’s a book on our list for every shroom enthusiast.
