Over 200 edible and poisonous mushrooms are depicted with simple checklists of their identifying features, as author David Arora celebrates the fun in fungi with the same engaging blend of wit and wisdom, fact and fancy, that has made his comprehensive guide, Mushrooms Demystified, the mushrooms hunter’s bible.
All That the Rain Promises deserves a spot in every wanderer’s backpack. It’s small, it’s concise, and it covers the most notable mushrooms one would expect to encounter in North America. If you had to have ONE mushroom ID book, this is it! David Arora’s wit is just a bonus, buy two of these, one for yourself, and one as a gift for your hiking partner (in case you forget and leave it at home).
