Staff Reviews

This little book puts the "field" in field guide! Small enough to fit in a back pocket and filled with colorful photos, this is a good resource for beginner foragers. Many thanks to Todd from Cafe Zing for introducing me to this book!

— From Mushrooms of the Northeast (Staff Pick)


Learn more about wild mushrooms

  • Hundreds of full-color photos with easy-to-understand text make this a great visual guide to learning about more than 400 species of common wild mushrooms found in the Northeast.
  • The species (from Morel Mushrooms to Shelf Mushrooms) are organized by shape, then by color, so you can identify them by their visual characteristics.
  • Plus, with the Top Edibles and Top Toxics sections, you'll begin to learn which are the edible wild mushrooms.
The information in the book, written by Teresa Marrone and Walt Sturgeon, is accessible to beginners but useful for even experienced mushroom seekers.
