About the Author
John Wright's passion for the foraging life is unbounded; he can be found from waist-deep in the sea collecting seaweed to ten feet up a tree picking mushrooms. He has become a regular lecturer and guide at River Cottage HQ. HIs first book, Mushrooms, was described in the Independent as 'the best guide to gathering and eating wild mushrooms there has ever been' and was shortlisted for the Jeremy Round award. His second book, the recently published Edible Seashore, describes the joys of foraging down by the sea, finding things from sea beet to lobsters.
