The Field Guide to Mushrooms
The classic 1928 mushroom guidebook by William S. Thomas,*
newly revised and illustrated by Marie F. Heerkens (2003).

       * -- Based on "Field Book of Common Mushrooms" by William Sturgis Thomas
A modern rendition of Dr. William S. Thomas’s classic field guide honors and retains his insight and knowledge, while enhancing it with the most up-to-date information on mushrooms —including the toxicity of poisonous types. Much of Dr. Thomas’s astute observations about chanterelles, candy caps, orange mock oysters, and other varieties still stand the test of time, as do the quotes and bits of insight that he included from his fellow mycologists. But they are now organized according to the currently accepted classifications and terminology, and with beautiful new illustrations.
Spiral-bound: 224 pages
