NONFIC: Foraging for Mushrooms Maine: Finding, Identifying and Preparing Edible Wild Mushrooms by Tom Seymour

September: NonFiction Pick

I loved this book because the author focused on some fairly easy to identify edible  mushrooms and wrote about 15-20 of them. This is a wonderful guide for beginners to experts.

There are detailed descriptions of edible mushrooms; tips on finding, preparing, and using mushrooms; a glossary of botanical terms; color photos. Use Foraging Mushrooms as a field guide or as a delightful armchair read. No matter what you’re looking for, be it the curative Heal-All or a snack, this guide will enhance your next backpacking trip or easy stroll around the garden, and may just provide some new favorites for your dinner table.
