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!
It should be augmented with a larger volume that you keep at home to double-check anything you pick.
