While many field guides and cookbooks have been written on mushrooms, fewer books have been devoted to frogs and toads (certainly field guides and perhaps a cookbook)—but none that we know of has ever addressed their curious historical relationships throughout the world. Artist and scholar Adrian Morgan has spent twelve years collecting, studying, drawing, painting, observing, and eating his subjects. The result is a glorious feast for the eye as well as the intellect. An astonishing compendium of art history, cultural anthropology, pharmacology, herpetology, mycology, and serious conjecture. TOADS & TOADSTOOLS will delight and amaze any armchair biologist. Brimming over with almost 150 illustrations.
