About the book:

A clear introduction explains everything a mushroom picker needs to know, followed by a fully-illustrated A–Z guide of the most popular edible wild mushrooms that grow in the British Isles. It is crucial that the most expert advice is taken when hunting for mushrooms, and this authoritative new handbook offers clear, practical information for accurate identification.

For each mushroom, the identifying features and typical habitats are described, along with storage and cooking tips. In addition the book presents and describes the poisonous and potentially deceptive species which the mushroom picker is most likely to come across.

"Foraging connects one to the natural environment, the changing seasons. Nothing gives me greater pleasure than going to look for mushrooms. The time disappears, as your burdens and anxieties slowly give way to exploring familiar habitats: perhaps a damp mossy birchwood shrouding its chanterelle treasure in the dappled light; or a pristine unimproved grassland grazed low by sheep and rabbits to an olive billiard baize ornamented with bright waxcaps. Responsible foragers understand the natural world and care for it. They have a part to play in protecting our environment as well as our ancient foraging culture." Neville Kilkenny
