Our Thoughts On:
Fall is in the air, and with rain happening and fungi popping up, the Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast is a great resource for any mycologically minded individual. With pictures containing multiple features of mushroom specimens, this book gives great descriptions of each mushroom with such details as:
Odor, and Spore Information
There is a great glossary of mycological terms at the back of the book, as well as an informative introduction to mushroom identification and collection.
While this isn't a book to take on the foray, it is a great resource to look up mushrooms that are found across the Pacific Northwest. While there is a focus on the "redwood coast" this book contains information and descriptions on mushrooms that can be found across the west, and also ones that are very common in the Pacific Northwest.
