Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Resource. This book has very clear pictures and instructions on how to fully identify a huge selection of mushrooms. If you follow the instructions in the begining on how to use the guide, you will find everything you need right there to begin hunting mushrooms. It's a great book for anyone who enjoys the outdoors and occasionally wonders about the mushrooms they pass.
