193989901X Nearly year-round, the wild edible mushroom circuit is at work. Under the nose of authorities, migrant pickers in the Western U.S. supply wild edibles for some of the fanciest restaurants in the country. In Under the Radar, Olivier Matthon takes readers on a firsthand account of northern Californian seasonal work communities in the wild mushroom trade. This ethnography takes place in small-town motels, private logging property, and a marijuana growing operation. Matthon highlights the struggle and need for community among migrant pickers, crafting a thoughtful and well-researched story about clandestine mushroom trade in Under the Radar. "A little-known facet of the town of Willits, California, is its community of wild mushroom pickers. Every year a few migrants arrive to overwinter and a few local people join in as well. This book gives a rare glimpse into the work and lives of these pickers?" ?David Arora, author of Mushrooms Demystified and All That The Rain Promises and More... "Olivier is a sport. He appeared at our 'mushroom' palace at what is always the most difficult time of the year and gently fit himself into the remaining mushroom tribe at the roughest end of the picking season. He writes with kind wonder about a world few see." ?Connie Green, author of The Wild Table
