September 12 - subTEXT

Five bucks each (but only because the first one was 50% off):
  • Gary Alan Fine, Morel Tales: The Culture of Mushrooming
  • Stephen Hume, Lilies and Fireweed: Frontier Women of British Columbia (Raincoast Chronicles 20)
Fine's book looks really engaging. I remember visiting Mount Ida, near Salmon Arm, the year after the forest fire swept through, and the mountain was awash with mushroom pickers.

As for Hume's, the Raincoast Chronicles series is one of the great publishing ventures of the Pacific Coast, and I'm happy to get another one on the shelf.
