Langdon Cook's The Mushroom Hunters Among Amazon's Best Books of the Month

Langdon Cook on the of trail of the underground mushroom foraging industry

We're loving all the attention Seattle Magazine Cook's Adventure's columnist, Fat of the Land blogger and author Langdon Cook's new book is getting. The Mushroom Hunters, On the Trail of an Underground America was just named one of Amazon's Best Books of the Month!

Following Cook's first book, Fat of the Land, The Mushroom Hunters is an unprecedented look into the undercover world of wild mushrom foraging, marketing and selling. It's a business of anonymous pickers, sometimes shady middlemen, and a largely misunderstood marketplace for consumers. Lang embedded with foragers from all over the country, from Alaska to Colorado, California through Oregon and of course into our deep woods here in Washington to dig into this subculture. The book is an adventure, an investigation and a great yarn that, at times, reads like a mystery.

The Mushroom Hunters is available for pre-order on Amazon now; it's official publish date is September 10th. Or buy it in person next week at your favorite local indie bookstore.

And do take the time check out Lang's column (with recipes!) as well. I'm proud to have his excellent writing in Seattle magazine.
