About this book

Mushrooms in the wild present an enticing challenge: some are delicious, others deadly, still others take on almost unbelievable forms. This field guide introduces 650 mushrooms found in the Carolinas – more than 50 of them appearing in a field guide for the first time – using clear language and color photographs to reveal their unique features.

What's included:
- Hundreds of full-colour photographs of Carolina mushrooms
- Information on mushroom edibility and toxicity
- Microscopic information
- An overview of the Carolinas' role in the history of American mycology

Perfect for those interested in learning more about mushrooms, the unusually large number of described species makes this book a must-have for experienced mushroom hunters as well as beginners. Here, at last, is the field guide for North and South Carolina mushrooms, from the mountains to the coast, presented in a single, portable volume.

"This reliable guide will surely be of use outside the Carolinas."

"The unusually large number of described species makes this book a must-have for experienced mushroom hunters as well as beginners. Here, at last, is the field guide for North and South Carolina mushrooms, from the mountains to the coast, presented in one portable volume."
Southeastern Naturalist

"The first modern field guide to mushrooms of the Carolinas, this book fills a mycological gap for regional information on southeastern fungi populations. Well-researched, user-friendly, and subtly humorous, this text will likely become the ultimate reference for the Carolinas as a field guide to mushrooms for years to come."
– Cathy Cripps, Montana State University

"Invaluable and long overdue, this guide to Carolina mushrooms features stunning photographs and informative descriptions of hundreds of diverse mushroom species. A giant leap forward in documenting the diversity of macrofungi in the Carolinas."
– Rytas Vilgalys, Duke University
