Wild Mushrooms, A Taste of Enchantment
An irreverent yet irrefutable guide to mushroom hunting by America's fav philosoforager, Alan Muskat. Its one hundred illustrated pages address the most common misconceptions about mushrooms as well as many questions left unanswered by the top-selling mushroom ID books. Note that this is not an ID book, a.k.a. "field guide." The only good field guide is one with two legs.
This updated and expanded edition will be available Spring 2014. The current 42-page edition is included in all my classes and is also available as a PDF (e-book) for $10 or spiral-bound for $20 including shipping. Order either one under "product order" here).
