Format: Paperback
In general I don't eat wild mushrooms, partly because I have read too many murder mysteries. Morels are the exception, because they are fairly easy to identify and pretty hard to confuse with poisonous varieties of mushrooms.

Milan Pelouch and his wife Lila have written a hand little guide for those who like morel hunting, and I scored an early review copy at LibraryThing.

This little book does exactly what it says it will do in the title- tells you all about how to find Morel mushrooms, using a friendly, chatty style.
Clear photographs and helpful descriptions (including photos and descriptions of mushrooms that are NOT Morels) are just the beginning.
Pelouch also takes time to explain the science behind Morels, how they grow, why they grow where they do, when they grow, and how to harvest them so as to ensure the chance of a good harvest next year. Best of all, he gives excellent advice on where to find them, describing the sort of terrain, soil, vegetation, and other aspects of the sort of habitat where you might expect to find morels.
The recipes (by Lila Pelouch) are a bonus, and Milan Pelouch concludes with a section on mushroom hunters etiquette and a map with a time table showing when you might expect tfo find morels in your state.
We love morels and I am looking forward to using this book to discover a patch in our woods, but even if we don't find any, we'll have learned some useful woodcraft and field information from this book, which, as Charlotte Mason type homeschoolers, makes me pretty happy.

I liked the book very much...It's not the authors fault that I'm not very lucky when it comes to finding morels. My timing is usually off or the location. I'm still new to the sport and this book will be a big help!

This is a nice book. It is simply written for the mushroom hunter rather than the mycologist. Great pictures, descriptions, recipes, and hunting tips. A good companion to Michael Kuo's morel book.
