Several thousand kinds of species of wild mushrooms exist. Some are poisonous, many cannot be eaten because of poor flavor or texture or small size, and a few are edible and delicious. Some mushrooms are easy to identify, and others are difficult. This booklet helps you identify various kinds of mushrooms. The publication contains one drawing and 13 color photographs, including the cover photograph.
