This classic field guide answers the amateur mycologist’s two most important questions: "What is it?" and "Is it good to eat?" Color photographs illustrate 199 species of mushrooms ranging from boletes to puffballs, chantrelles to truffles. Full descriptions clearly identify the edible or poisonous qualities of each.
Margaret McKenny (1885-1969) was an educator, author, conservationist, and an expert on mushrooms.
