California Mushrooms by Dennis E. Desjardin, Michael G. Wood & Frederick A. Stevens

This beautiful full color guide is the most comprehensive mushroom index to the huge array of fungi found in California I have found. It’s very well organized into all the major fungi families and the large color photos are an invaluable tool. It’s a perfect in-depth companion to the David Aurora field guide, All That the Rain Promises. A must for budding or seasoned mushroom hunters alike!  —Sylvie

Carsick: John Waters Hitchhikes Across America by John Waters

Hitch a ride on the open road with America’s most beloved weirdo, John Waters. Carsick chronicles Waters’ coast-to-coast hitchhiking odyssey from Baltimore to San Francisco with all the strange and wonderful sights and sounds in between. Even the most mundane roadside truck stops are transformed into provocative tableaus when filtered through Waters’ charismatic and irreverent lens. Every bit as outrageous as a John Waters’ hitchhiking adventure should be.
