We must be hitting peak mushroom madness (fungi furore?) about now - the need to research, discover and document the largely unknown and underground kingdom of fungi has been building and building, with podcasts, documentaries and books bursting forth like so many spores into the air.
'In Search of Mycotopia' by Doug Bierend is a brilliant addition to this explosion and presents us with a fascinating plunge into this frothing mushroom craze. The book is, in essence, an exploration of the burgeoning mycological movement and presents us with some of its more interesting characters, including biologists, community-minded entrepreneurs, ecologists and festival organisers.
Through discourse with these many experts and amateurs, Bierend helps us to explore fungi’s capacity to improve and heal. From decontaminating landscapes and waterways to achieving food security, In Search of Mycotopia demonstrates how humans can work with fungi to better live with nature—and with one another
