This beautiful full color guide is the most comprehensive mushroom index to the huge array of fungi found in California I have found. It’s very well organized into all the major fungi families and the large color photos are an invaluable tool. It’s a perfect in-depth companion to the David Aurora field guide, All That the Rain Promises. A must for budding or seasoned mushroom hunters alike!
“[All That the Rain Promises and More] is certainly the best guide to fungi, and may in fact be a long lasting masterpiece in guide writing for all subjects.”—Roger McKnight, TheNew York Times
Mushrooms appeal to all kinds of people—and so will this handy pocket guide, which includes key information for more than 200 Western mushrooms
Over 200 edible and poisonous mushrooms are depicted with simple checklists of their identifying features, as David Arora celebrates the fun in fungi with the same engaging bend of wit and wisdom, fact and fancy, that has made his comprehensive guide, Mushrooms Demystified, the mushroom hunter’s bible.
“The best guide for the beginner. I’d buy it no matter where I lived in North America.”—Whole Earth Catalog
