The National Audubon Society Pocket Guide to Familiar Mushrooms is filled with distinct descriptions and detailed color photographs yet is compact enough to easily slip into the back pocket when on a mushroom-hunting excursion. This streamlined volume contains; an easy-to-use field guide identifying 80 familiar North American mushrooms, an outline of identifying mushrooms characteristics, the basics of when and where to look for mushrooms and certain distinguishing qualities of poisonous mushrooms.
