This guidebook describes forty different edible species of wild mushrooms found around Illinois and surrounding states, including Iowa, Wisconsin, Missouri, Indiana, and Kentucky. The authors include details of potential look-alikes, the best times and places to find them and advice on preparing, storing, drying and cooking.
Required reading for all wild mushroom hunters in the Midwest, and especially beginners. McFarland and Mueller have come up with an entirely new format for getting the uninitiated involved in the joys of wild mushrooming. The writing is learned but very easy to understand, entertaining, and witty--at times hilarious. Bravo! Britt A. Bunyard, publisher and editor in chief, Fungi magazine "Complete with interesting vignettes and delightful recipes ... A thought-provoking, humorous, and practical guide." Andrew S. Methven, professor and chair of biological sciences, Eastern Illinois University
