"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."
