A must have for ANY mushroom hunter whether new or expeienced! I've read most all books available on mushrooms of the West/Pacific NW and this is by far the most detailed and descriptive of them all. Do yourself a favor and buy THIS ONE first. You won't be sorry!!

This book is GREAT! The pictures are great and the details it gives on the mushrooms really help. It will also warn you on look-a-like mushrooms that are harmful.
