Langdon Cook got on the

following itinerant harvesters through the woods to learn their secrets.
Meet the pickers, buyers, and chefs who make the free-wheeling wild

Langdon Cook is the author of The
Mushroom Hunters: On the Trail of an Underground America, winner of the
2014 Pacific Northwest Book Award, and Fat of the Land: Adventures of a
21st Century Forager, which the Seattle Times called “lyrical,
practical and quixotic.” His writing appears in numerous publications,
and he has been profiled in Bon Appetit, Outside, Salon.com,
and the PBS TV series Food Forward. Cook lives in Seattle with his wife
and two children.
Mr. Cook will have copies of the
"The Mushroom Hunters" for sale and author signing.
