Make identification simple and accurate with 762 full-color photographs of North American mushrooms as they appear in natural habitats, organized visually by color and shape. Each species is accompanied by a detailed physical description, information on edibility, season, habitat, range, look-alikes, alternative names, and facts on edible and poisonous species, uses, and folklore. A supplementary section on cooking and eating wild mushrooms, and illustrations identifying the parts of a mushroom, round out this essential guide.
