Hundreds of species of mushrooms flourish in Texas, from the desert and semiarid regions of West Texas to the moist and acid soils of East Texas, where species that can also be found in South America live alongside those that might be spotted in Malaysia and Europe. Texas Mushrooms was the first - and is still the only - guide to all of the state's mushrooms. This colourful, easy-to-follow book will surprise and delight uninitiated nature enthusiasts while also supplying the experienced mushroom hunter with expert identification information. Excellent colour photographs and precise descriptions of over 200 species will enable the mushroom hunter - even the amateur - to make quick, careful, easy distinctions between the edible varieties and the potentially toxic ones. In addition, kitchen-tested recipes are included, along with charts giving spore sizes and a list of recommended further reading. In Texas, mushroom hunting can be a year-round, state-wide activity, and with this enticing field guide, collecting, identifying, and preparing wild mushrooms will become an activity the entire family can enjoy while appreciating the beauty of Texas from a new and fascinating angle.

Review:

So it’s easy to recommend Texas Mushrooms to any [reader] who travels to Texas, especially since it’s the only field guide to Texas mushrooms. The book definitely has some Texas swagger: from the assertion that mushroom-hunting in Texas is a year-round activity to pride in the diversity of mushrooms in East Texas...to the receipe for Texas-hot Pickled Mushrooms. The tone of the book is informal; this is the friendliest mushroom field guide I’ve encountered. Author: Patricia McNaught Source: New Jersey Mycological Association

From the Back Cover:

Excellent color photographs and precise descriptions of over 200 species will enable the mushroom hunter- even the amateur to make quick, careful. easy distinctions between the edible varieties and the potentially toxic ones.
