Has anyone here read The Mushroom Hunters?

If you want to understand hunt-and-gather, this book will inspire you. Reading it was like living the last three years of my life over again. Most of the subsistence food in the PNW is still out there for the foraging, and probably in most other places that humans have abandoned. What shows up at Herbfarm on an ??ber expensive plate was out there in the woods 24 hours ago.

I'm glad the author didn't reveal my berry, hazelnut, clam and oyster spots. I like a lobster mushroom, but not as much as a wild oyster fried with bacon. I prefer being wet on a beach to crashing through untrailed wet brush for my food.

Lived. I'll be moving back to the Northwest in the next year, but not to Grays Harbor.

I never really learned to gather mushrooms, just chanterelles and morels. They were always readily available out there, at farmer's markets in Hoquiam, Olympia and Portland.

Haven't read it, might have to check it out. I do have All That the Rain Promises and More. Mind if I ask where in the PNW you live?
