Book Review: Mushrooms of the redwood coast

Saturday, August 20, 2016


Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast is the most impressive and comprehensive book on mushrooms that I have ever read.  There about 500 pages of information 750 species of mushrooms growing in coastal northern California with accompanied pictures.  The authors gave a lot of tips on how to find them in their natural habitat, identifying them, collecting them, and what tools are essential for mushroom foraging.  Twenty five major groups of mushrooms take center stage in this book such as chanterelles, amanita, dark-spored mushrooms, waxy caps, tooth fungi, truffles, and morels.  Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast is perfect for those mushroom nerds and those interested in mushroom foraging.
