CHASING THE RAIN
My Treasure Hunt for the World's Most Beautiful Mushrooms
"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."-- James A. Cox, Midwest Book Review
Chasing the Rain is the fruit of Taylor Lockwood's travels in search of the world's most beautiful mushrooms. Through pictures, it relates the diversity of life-forms found in this very large, but still relatively little-known kingdom. Chasing the Rain tells the stories behind those pictures, shows us ones not yet published, and reveals something new.
Taylor's anecdotes on photographing mushrooms in various climes and conditions chronicles the connection between people who hunt mushrooms all over the world. Developing friendships with colleagues and fellow mushroom enthusiasts around the globe has afforded Taylor a unique perspective on people, travel, and nature-from the ground up. With fungi as the common denominator, barriers of language, culture, and politics are erased.
Through his lens, we are taken on a gentle journey that is sometimes exciting, oftentimes funny, and always close to the earth.
