Description: A Guide to the Mushroom Species of Eastern North America.

Are the red ones poisonous? Can you eat a puff ball? Our questions about mushrooms are legion. This handy guide offers answers to many questions you may have about wild mushrooms. Their seasons, colors, sizes, characteristics, and especially their edibility are dealt with in succinct detail, and colored photographs offer additional help in identification. Many mushrooms should be collected only by camera - but these ones are clearly noted in the text. Those which make such delightful additions to gourmet meals are here too, complete with hints on how to cook them and herbs to add. Whether you are a mycologist or a mycophagist this is an invaluable field guide.
