About this item

Begin identifying and collecting seven edible mushrooms! Mushrooms are beautiful, bountiful, and delicious. But foraging for them often makes people nervous -- and for good reason! Start Mushrooming takes away the worry by introducing seven of the most unmistakable, edible mushrooms in North America. The guide by award-winning author and naturalist Stan Tekiela has been invaluable since 1993, and this new edition presents updated information, more photographs, and even easier mushroom identification. Because it focuses on just seven mushrooms, you get a complete package of details. Plus, a unique list of six yes/no questions helps beginners to confirm each mushroom's identity. Is it fall? Is it growing on wood? Is it 2 to 6 inches high? Six "yes" answers means that your mushroom is safe to forage and eat! This field guide breakthrough is further supplemented with bonus recipes and a full-color design, as well as information on toxic species to watch out for.
