Format: Paperback
This is a very beautiful book that almost could have been sub-titled: Everything you ever wanted to know about them including what they are, where to find them, what to do with them, and other bits of wisdom too numerous to mention.

Morels are fungi. One of the organisma that nature uses to help dead plants return their nutrients to the soil. It's also interesting, biologically speaking, in that it is in the process of evolving from a single celled organism (a yeast) into a multicelled organized. This appearantly began about 50,000 years ago.

Other than that, and regardless of the number of cells they have, morels are delicious. The people who gather them are called schroomers and collecting them is an enjoyable passtime, no collecting them is more like an addiction.

This book is a tribute to the fungi, the schroomers, and the eaters. It's couple of hundred photographs are little less than amazing. If this is your thing, this book will give you many enjoyable moments while you wait for the next collecting season.

And Michaels book is no exception to that rule. He does an excellant job of portraying us, the mushroom hunter, along with wit and real-life experiences that any serious morel hunter has probably experienced. As I read the book, I became engrossed in the factual and hypothetic scenerios that take place in the mysterious world of the Morchella.

Each page is yet another look into the world of the fungi, and Michael brings that to wherever you might have a read, with his text, diagrams and photography.

My only regret is that when the book was over, I was in need of more, because, after all, there is so much more......to.... Morels....

I have read several books about morels, but none compare with this. It was fabulous, and one that other morel addicts like me (you know who you are) will also love. I have given several copies as gifts (to people from both blue and red states), and they all loved it, too. The pictures aren't just beautiful, they also elicit fond memories of forays from times past. A million thanks to Michael Kuo. He made it very informative, and a really, really fun read!

If you really want to learn something about Morels and to get your education in an entertaining and relaxed way read any book on mushrooms written by Michael Kuo. Having spent too many hours over many months reading 'deep' scientific research and trying to learn all I can about morels I was dumbstruck to come across Michael Kuo's "MORELS". Here was a book that pretty much captures most of what I have learned by studying articles written by scientists; but this book is written by a person who really knows how to hold your interest and how to keep your educational experience enjoyable. A great read for anyone wanting to know more about morels.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book; so much so that I bought the "100 Edible Mushrooms" also written by Michael Kuo. The photography is excellent, as is the description of the mushrooms. He writes with a sense of humor and avoids getting too technical. If you are lookng for a keyed identification guide, I would not recommend this title; there are many others more suited for that. But if you are looking for a fun, yet practical guide, this is a wonderful choice. The author understands the passion involved in finding morels......

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Excellent mushroom book for Morel enthusiasts. Great pictures, information on finding, collecting, and identifying these fascinating and delicious mushrooms. Also some wonderful recipes. Michael Kuo can eloquently express the poetry of the experience of a special moment most of us hunters have had on some especially memorable day. I am a little torn giving this recommendation only because I don't want to encourage the competition on this Great Treasure Hunt.
