Coming to the Pacific North West of the North American Continent (Vancouver Island, BC, Canada) in 1986, some 25 years ago, I had to relearn much of what I had been familiar with in Central Europe. The 60 or so species of fungi, I had been able to chose from on my foraging expeditions over there were reduced to nothing, and slowly over the years were increased to something like 30 species. I yearned for a guide to advance me!
This book (All the Rain Promises . . . ) is the best of all the ones I purchase in pursuit of increasing my knowledge. And although I am a firm believer in the fact that any mushroom hunter, who cares for his/her life and that of his/her loved ones should have many guide books, and use them judiciously, I would recommend this one (All the Rain Promises . . . ) for any one who dares to invest in only one . . .
Mushroom hunting is a great passion, a passion that sometimes allows you to survive, and this is the best book to guide you in its pursuit, particularly in the Pacific North West!

Provides good information and photos for many mushrooms found on the West Coast. It is difficult to provide a field guide which covers all mushrooms in specific regions. Read morePublished 7 days ago by Amazon Customer
