"A very special blend of travelogue and horticultural study, Chasing the Rain: My Treasure Hunt for the World's Most Beautiful Mushrooms by Taylor F. Lockwood is beautifully illustrated throughout with the author's simply gorgeous, full-color photography of an astonishing variety of mushrooms. The text offers fascinating and informative anecdotes about everything from having to dodge deadly snakes in China, to warding off swarms of mosquitoes in Borneo, to outsmarting a band of monkeys in Bali, to hunting for mushrooms at 14 000 feet in Tibet's thin air, to the difficulties of finding mushrooms in drought-stricken Europe. [...] A joy to page through and a highly recommended addition to personal, academic, and community library collections, Chasing the Rain is as entertaining as it is informative."
