Description : Read Now The Way Through The Woods by Litt Woon Long and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. a grieving widow discovers a most unexpected form of healing—hunting for mushrooms. long litt woon met eiolf a month after arriving in norway from malaysia as an exchange student. they fell in love, married, and settled into domestic bliss. then eiolf’s unexpected death at fifty-four left woon struggling to imagine a life without the man who had been her partner and anchor for thirty-two years. adrift in grief, she signed up for a beginner’s course on mushrooming—a course the two of them had planned to take together—and found, to her surprise, that the pursuit of mushrooms rekindled her zest for life. the way through the woods tells the story of parallel journeys: an inner one, through the landscape of mourning, and an outer one, into the fascinating realm of mushrooms—resilient, adaptable, and essential to nature’s cycle of death and rebirth. from idyllic norwegian forests and urban flower beds to the sandy beaches of corsica and new york’s central park, woon uncovers an abundance of surprises often hidden in plain sight: salmon-pink bloody milk caps, which ooze red liquid when cut; delectable morels, prized for their earthy yet delicate flavor; and bioluminescent mushrooms that light up the forest at night. along the way, she discovers the warm fellowship of other mushroom obsessives, and finds that giving her full attention to the natural world transforms her, opening a way for her to survive eiolf’s death, to see herself anew, and to reengage with life. advance praise for the way through the woods “in her search for new meaning in life after the death of her husband, long litt woon undertook the study of mushrooms. what she found in the woods, and expresses with such tender joy in this heartfelt memoir, was nothing less than salvation.”—eugenia bone, author of mycophilia and microbia

Description : Read Now The Allure Of Fungi by Alison Pouliot and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. although relatively little known, fungi provide the links between the terrestrial organisms and ecosystems that underpin our functioning planet. the allure of fungi presents fungi through multiple perspectives – those of mycologists and ecologists, foragers and forayers, naturalists and farmers, aesthetes and artists, philosophers and traditional owners. it explores how a history of entrenched fears and misconceptions about fungi has led to their near absence in australian ecological consciousness and biodiversity conservation. through a combination of text and visual essays, the author reflects on how aesthetic, sensate experience deepened by scientific knowledge offers the best chance for understanding fungi, the forest and human interactions with them.

Description : Read Now Running Home by Katie Arnold and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. in the tradition of wild and h is for hawk, a former outside magazine writer tells her story--of fathers and daughters, grief and renewal, adventure and obsession, and the power of running to change your life. i'm running to forget, and to remember. for more than a decade, katie arnold chased adventure around the world, reporting on extreme athletes who performed outlandish feats--walking high lines a thousand feet off the ground without a harness, or running one hundred miles through the night. she wrote her stories by living them, until eventually life on the thin edge of risk began to seem normal. after she married, katie and her husband vowed to raise their daughters to be adventurous, too, in the mountains and canyons of new mexico. but when her father died of cancer, she was forced to confront her own mortality. his death was cataclysmic, unleashing a perfect storm of grief and anxiety. she and her father, an enigmatic photographer for national geographic, had always been kindred spirits. he introduced her to the outdoors and took her camping and on bicycle trips and down rivers, and taught her to find solace and courage in the natural world. and it was he who encouraged her to run her first race when she was seven years old. now nearly paralyzed by fear and terrified she was dying, too, she turned to the thing that had always made her feel most alive: running. over the course of three tumultuous years, she ran alone through the wilderness, logging longer and longer distances, first a 50-kilometer ultramarathon, then 50 miles, then 100 kilometers. she ran to heal her grief, to outpace her worry that she wouldn't live to raise her own daughters. she ran to find strength in her weakness. she ran to remember and to forget. she ran to live. ultrarunning tests the limits of human endurance over seemingly inhuman distances, and as she clocked miles across mesas and mountains, katie learned to tolerate pain and discomfort, and face her fears of uncertainty, vulnerability, and even death itself. as she ran, she found herself peeling back the layers of her relationship with her father, discovering that much of what she thought she knew about him, and her own past, was wrong. running home is a memoir about the stories we tell ourselves to make sense of our world--the stories that hold us back, and the ones that set us free. mesmerizing, transcendent, and deeply exhilarating, it is a book for anyone who has been knocked over by life, or feels the pull of something bigger and wilder within themselves. "a beautiful work of searching remembrance and searing honesty . . . katie arnold is as gifted on the page as she is on the trail. running home will soon join such classics as born to run and ultramarathon man as quintessential reading of the genre."--hampton sides, author of on desperate ground and ghost soldiers
