A great beginners book on a wonderful pastime.

Format: Paperback
This little book is a good guide to give someone the confidence to begin to harvest mushrooms that they might find in the woods or fields.
There are some colour photographs of the 6 mushrooms that the reader is advised to start with. Where and when these mushrooms can be found is given, as well as some good advice, like wear long pants and watch for poison ivy. Safety tips are listed, such as having 2 baskets for those mushrooms you are sure of and others that one might want to look at more carefully, therefore avoiding contamination of the sure safe ones.

Characteristics of common poisonous mushrooms are explained, as well as how the sometimes safe puffball is confused with it. Recipes are provided and differing storage methods.
This is an excellent book for beginning mushroom hunters and will provide a surprise at how easily some of them are found.

A good book for the beganer....However the book has an extremely poor binding and as a field guide it will "fall apart" The pages are not bound very well...if at all !

I like this book. It was simple and easy to understand. The only problem is the binding. It is loose and not at all strong enough to hold the pages together.
