A forager's guide to the wild fungi of Britain, Ireland and Europe
By (author) Geoff Dann
This is the most comprehensive guide to foraging for wild mushrooms in UK and Northern Europe. With a special pictorial index, it is perfect for both beginners and experienced foragers. It describes the best tasting fungi, where to find them and when they are at their best; how to distinguish the edible species from the poisonous lookalikes; and when to leave an edible mushroom alone so the species can survive.
