A Field Guide to Mushrooms of the Carolinas Paperback

By Alan Bessette, Arleen Bessette, Michael Hopping

Mushrooms in the wild present an enticing challenge: some are delicious, others are deadly, and still others take on almost unbelievable forms. This field guide introduces 650 mushrooms found in the Carolinas--more than 50 of them appearing in a field guide for the first time--using clear language and color photographs to reveal their unique features. 

What's included: 

  • Hundreds of full color photographs of Carolina mushrooms 
  • Information on mushroom edibility and toxicity 
  • Microscopic information 
  • An overview of the Carolinas' role in the history of American mycology 

Perfect for those interested in learning more about mushrooms, the unusually large number of described species makes this book a must-have for experienced mushroom hunters as well as beginners. Here, at last, is the field guide for North and South Carolina mushrooms, from the mountains to the coast, presented in a single, portable volume.
