Customer Product Reviews

Rated 3.8 out of 5★ by 4reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5★ by For the enthusiast with some knowledge A full-color field guide with helpful features. Could be made better with a more in-depth descriptions of the habitats for the various species, a more visible edibility section and a photo by each of the fungi descriptions. Handy but could be better. 01/03/2009
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Excellent mushroom book I doubt, a mushroom exists in our country which is not depicted in this wonderful book with its beautiful color photos. The step by step instructions how to tell the correct mushroom are easy and well laid out. 10/03/2011
Rated 1 out of 5★ by National Audubon Society Field Guide to North Amer National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mushrooms was shipped to store and when I went to pick it up the cover of the book was crumbling apart and I had to refuse to accept it. I got my money back and was disappointed that the book was not mine. It looked like a great book with lots of color photos . 02/26/2011
