Perfect for the NW Nov 27, 2007
I really needed this book with all the different mushrooms that we have wild in the NW area where I live. The pictures are beauiful and easy to find the mushroom you are looking for in the book.
Audobon editorial style Nov 15, 2007
Audubon requires that regardless of the subject, a certain format and presentation guidelines must be adhered to. This severly limits information in finding various species and the pictures limit the variety of views a hunter needs to identify a find accurately. Pretty book but not for the serious hunter. Check birding books by Audubon to see the similar editorial approaches.
Great guide for a risky hobby. Oct 15, 2007
If you know anything about mushroom hunting, or even if you don't. This book is a must have. If you know anything about mushrooms or mushroom hunting you know that it is a dangerous adventure. Some are poisonous, some are just plain NASTY! Some will alter the mind, some are delicious. If you are into mushrooms or mushroom hunting this is a must have to identify mushrooms. I trust this book with my life. I have many times.This guide displays the mushrooms vividly and has great in depth details about the mushrooms in it. It will tell you a variety of information that will keep you safe, and remember, "If in doubt...throw it out." If you cannot without a doubt identify something, do NOT eat it. It is a helpful guide and an excellent buy for anyone. Very nice compact guide for field identification.
best mushroom guide Sep 10, 2007
This guide has the clearest most detailed pictures of any field guide I've seen. The info on how to use the guide is simple and understandable. I've identified and documented many mushrooms using this guide.
A Wonderful Guide Jul 9, 2007
This is book is an excellent guide to mushrooms for the money. Its portability and durability are also second-to-none.
The book is full of beautiful color photographs and full descriptions. The pictures are grouped into categories (like all Audubon field guides) for quick identification. Personally, I am very pleased with it and highly recommend it.
