|The ability to correctly identify mushrooms
is, in many ways, an art in itself. With this profusely illustrated, helpful
guide providing assistance, it should be possible to acquire a good deal of the skill
necessary to differentiate between a delectable parasol mushroom and a species with a
similar appearance, the green-gilled parasol, which is highly toxic if ingested.
Bright, bold photographs and concise text together describe important
features and enhance an extended graph provided for use as an identification key.
The large format adds impact to the main body of material: an in-depth field
guide that indicates whether a species is deadly poisonous, possibly edible, or a choice
selection to include in gourmet recipes such as those featured in the final chapter.
