The first field guide dedicated to North and South Carolina mushrooms

Mushrooms in the wild present an enticing challenge: some are delicious, others are deadly, and still others take on almost unbelievable forms. This field guide introduces 650 mushrooms found in the Carolinas--more than 50 of them appearing in a field guide for the first time--using clear language and color photographs to reveal their unique features.

What's included:
Hundreds of full color photographs of Carolina mushrooms
Information on mushroom edibility and toxicity
Microscopic information
An overview of the Carolinas' role in the history of American mycology

Perfect for those interested in learning more about mushrooms, the unusually large number of described species makes this book a must-have for experienced mushroom hunters as well as beginners. Here, at last, is the field guide for North and South Carolina mushrooms, from the mountains to the coast, presented in a single, portable volume.
