All That the Rain Promises & More
A hip pocket guide to Western mushrooms.
An illustrated guide to identifying 200 Western mushrooms – whether edible, poisonous, or medicinal – by their key features.
“In leafing through these pages, you may wonder what all the ‘fanciful,’ ‘foolish,’ or (shudder) ‘extraneous’ material is doing in a factual guide. After all, it is the practical, hands-on, how-to-identify information that makes this book useful and gives it substance. But I ask: is it any stranger or less desirable to sprinkle the facts with flakes of fancy than it is to liven up solemn, substantial fare like potatoes with something fancier and more flavorful, like wild mushrooms?”
– David Arora
