A childhood adventure on the Queen’s Sandringham estate sparked Geoffrey Kibby’s lifelong passion for identifying wild mushrooms.
That passion made Kibby one of Britain’s foremost experts on identifying mushrooms in the field, and his privately published books on how to identify British mushrooms pass on many of those skills. Aimed at everyone from enthusiastic amateur to expert, Kibby’s user-friendly books contain an enormous amount of information, are fully illustrated, and sturdy enough to be used in the field.
The wealth of detail includes vital features to look for when identifying wild mushrooms in the field, and the important identification characteristics when using a microscope, often an essential tool in mycology.
These books are also an essential guide to identifying edible mushrooms and are valuable handbooks when mushrooming anywhere in western Europe.
