Synopsis

An up-to-date, comprehensive and brilliantly illustrated book on fungi foraging in Britain and Europe. It covers every known edible species, and all the poisonous groups, as well as a few very common species and a handful of mushrooms included for their interesting or unusual characteristics.

  • Identify edible and poisonous mushrooms.
  • Distinguish between 'lookalike' species.
  • Know when is the best time and place to hunt for each species.
  • Identify edible species which should be left alone because they are threatened
  • Photos show each species in its natural habitat, to aid identification.

Perfect for all ability levels - from absolute beginner to the experienced fungi forager who'd like to become an expert. Each edible species is ranked according to its difficulty/danger level, so beginners can start with the easiest ones, while experienced foragers can learn how to safely forage for the trickier species that other mushroom foraging guides leave out.

A fascinating, wise companion on the journey into the delicious, world of fungi. Come Autumn, it will accompany every foray I make into the woods, and my life, and my frying pan, will be vastly richer because of it. - Rob Hopkins, founder of the Transition movement.

Bursting with quality photos and great information, this book is a must for foragers. Put it in your rucksack, and let it guide you on safe, fun fungal adventures. - Fergus Drennan aka Fergus The Forager
