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.

I buy multiple copies of this book to give to my friends who ask me to "teach them how to pick mushrooms". A great beginners book on a wonderful pastime.Published 22 months ago by John C. Kretzschmar
