What did you love best about The Mushroom Hunters?
This book is full of mini adventures as the author meets all sorts of unusual people in search of mushrooms. Every stitch of the book is interesting and colorful. A wonderful read!

What made the experience of listening to The Mushroom Hunters the most enjoyable?
I'd only recently taken up mushrooming. Meant to learn about mushrooms for years, and finally joined the Connecticut Valley Mycological Society. I'm a nature freak, always have been, but I didn't know much about fungus until I got involved with the club. The east coast is not the mushroom mecca that the west coast is, but you can still find almost all of the species covered in the book, if not in such astonishing abundance (less so with the droughts that are hurting us all where ever we are).
I've had a taste of the way your heart pounds when you find a flush of chanterelles or trumpets, sprinted under the canopy to pounce on a king bolete (as if it could run away). So to listen to the buzz of finding hundreds of them, oh my!
This was the right book at the right time for me.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Mushroom Hunters?
When the author gets lost trying to navigate through the fallen trees on a burn site.
What about Kevin Free’s performance did you like?
He sounded like the kind of guy you'd go mushrooming with.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me hungry for MUSHROOMS.
Any additional comments?
I actually listened to this while I was out in the woods looking for mushrooms. Found a nice big flush of Hydnum repandum with my earbuds in!
