Note: I have no intention of eating anything I find. If you want to find a natural source for edible mushrooms, there is good information in this book about what is, and is definitely not, edible. Remember that the number one warning in every book about eating wild shrooms is the same: learn from an expert, refer to multiple sources of identification (books, people, web-sites, etc.) and be really careful.
so the book does need improvements, like most all of the books, I want a listing in the index which are edible and which are toxic or non-edible, since they are ones that no one wants, at least not me!! and the common name for them should be listed too, so I can find it easily, all books have this problem. so if u don't know what it is, DON"T EAT IT !! or ur not sure, DON"T EAT IT!! I would like to see if they have a book like this for other areas, I think it is a very good book. No e-mail is included to talk to the authors either, it should have that. the publishers name and number is printed, but no e-mail for them either! good luck !
My only disappointment is that there aren't identical guides for other regions, like Kansas, as I split my time between a few places. I would instantly buy this guide for other regions as well.
