<i>Mycelium Running</i> is a manual for the mycological rescue of the planet. That鈥檚 right: growing more <i>mushrooms</i> may be the best thing we can do to save the environment, and in this groundbreaking text from mushroom expert Paul Stamets, you鈥檒l find out how.<br />聽<br />The basic science goes like this: Microscopic cells called 鈥渕ycelium鈥?-the fruit of which are mushrooms--recycle carbon, nitrogen, and other essential elements as they break down plant and animal debris in the creation of rich new soil. What Stamets has discovered is that we can capitalize on mycelium鈥檚 digestive power and target it to decompose toxic wastes and pollutants (mycoremediation), catch and reduce silt from streambeds and pathogens from agricultural watersheds (mycofiltration), control insect populations (mycopesticides), and generally enhance the health of our forests and gardens (mycoforestry and myco-gardening). <br />聽<br />In this comprehensive guide, you鈥檒l find chapters detailing each of these four exciting branches of what Stamets has coined 鈥渕ycorestoration,鈥?as well as chapters on the medicinal and nutritional properties of mushrooms, inoculation methods, log and stump culture, and species selection for various environmental purposes. Heavily referenced and beautifully illustrated, this book is destined to be a classic reference for bemushroomed generations to come.

<b>A game warden鈥檚 gripping account of his career protecting wildlife鈥攁nd people鈥攊n New England and in New Orleans.</b><br /> 聽<br /> When Roger Guay鈥檚 father died in a tragic accident during a fishing excursion, a kind game warden helped him through the loss. Inspired by this experience, as well as his love of the outdoors, Guay became a game warden himself, and a certified K9 handler鈥攂eginning a successful career that would span twenty-five years and see him establish canine units as a staple of the game warden service.<br /> 聽<br /> Guay takes readers into the patient, watchful world of a warden catching poachers and protecting pristine wilderness, and the sometimes CSI-like reconstruction of deer- and moose-poaching scenes. Guay searches for lost hunters and hikers, estimating that over the years, he has pulled more than two hundred bodies out of Maine鈥檚 north woods. His frequent companion is a little brown lab named Reba, who can find discarded weapons, ejected shells, hidden fish, and missing people.<br /> 聽<br /><i>A Good Man with a Dog</i> explores Guay鈥檚 life as he and his canine partners are exposed to increasingly terrible events, from tracking down hostile poachers to searching for victims of violent crimes, including a year-long search for the hidden graves of two babies buried by a Massachusetts cult. He witnessed firsthand FEMA鈥檚 mismanagement of the post-Katrina cleanup efforts in New Orleans, an experience that left him scarred and disheartened. But ultimately, he reveals how he found hope again鈥攁nd returned to the woods he knew and loved from the days of his youth.
