Yes, this crazy man with a trombone is still hands down the best field resource for mushroom hunting we have found. This nice, small pocket guide takes you through best practices and the most commonly identified mushrooms in the North American west with plenty of quirky anecdotes, storytelling, recipes, and other useful tools woven throughout. The information is clear, accessible, well written, and has photos to assist you on your hunt. After over a decade of mushroom hunting experience, this guide still comes out with us on every hunt.
Note: Mushroom hunting is a dangerous hobby. Please learn from an experienced guide before collecting edible mushrooms on your own. This book is a wonderful resource but it is not a replacement from a well-seasoned fungi enthusiast.
