Love this book. I'm an amature so far, but it's got amazing photos and good descriptions. I live in Northern Wisconsin and have found numerous mushrooms from this book. Highly recommended!

I have not yet found any of the mushrooms contained in this volume, but I feel confident that when I do have the opportunity to come across mushrooms in the wild, that I will at least have the ability to identify and avoid poisonous specimens and be able to gather edible ones. Great pictures and commentary!
