Book Description

Jan. 1 2003
The northeastern United States is home to an enormous variety of mushrooms--some delicious, some deadly. This handy in-the-field guide offers identification information for some 50 mushrooms that mushroom hunters are most likely to encounter in the wild: Parasol Mushroom, Delicious Lactarius, Sulphur Shelf, Giant Puffball. It also features detailed photos illustrating the characteristics to look for when identifying mushrooms and natural history information--where they grow, when they appear, and the various forms they take. This handy identification guide features the "foolproof five" and includes a useful identification flowchart.

1.0 out of 5 stars Common Edible and Poisonous Mushrooms of the Northeast Oct. 26 2005
By N. Straus - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a re-release of a 1960 booklet. It is of interest to historical mycologists but not very useful to amateurs who need a book to keep them away from toxic mushrooms. There are some good pictures; unfortunately, most of them are on the cover of the book.

3.0 out of 5 stars depends what your looking for July 31 2010

this book is as simple as it gets, a great book to start out with. he covers the fool proof 5, some stuff to stay away from, and if your smart, more stuff to stay away from. if you know nothing, you will learn alot. if you want to identify as many mushrooms as possible, look elsewhere.
