Read what experienced mushroomers are saying about Edible Wild Mushrooms of North America:
"This is not simply another mushroom field guide... People hesitant in mycophagy
[mushroom gathering and eating] will find confidence in their abilities by using this
book... it should become the most popular field guide on the market---a fixture in
everyone's basket." --Barry L. Wulff, Professor Emeritus of Biology, Eastern
Connecticut State University
"This is an especially helpful book for new members
of our mushroom clubs... For our intermediate members, it is a tool to
increase the number of edible species they know and to expand their
knowledge on techniques for using edible mushrooms... The photos are clear
and the description of each species includes a discussion of edibility and cooking and
storing suggestions... This book will enable you to enjoy a great variety of edible wild
mushrooms." --Sandy Sheine, President, Connecticut-Westchester Mycological
