Welcome to the wonderful world of mushrooms with David Arora. Mushrooms Demystified is hands-down the best and most comprehensive guidebook to North American mushrooms. A big book containing everything you need to know before and after you forage for fungi—descriptions, photographs, and keys to over 2,000 species and a beginner’s checklist of 70 most distinctive and common mushrooms.
With only a few pages on mushroom cookery and preservation methods, this is definitely NOT a mushroom cookbook, but rather a technical guidebook. The science of mycology is well covered with chapters on mushroom terminology, classification, toxins, habitat, and meanings of scientific mushroom names.
David Arora is a knowledgeable and experienced mushroom hunter, but more importantly, he is passionate and witty about fungi and is the best friend one would like to have on any mushroom hunt. Mushrooms Demystified is a must-have book for all mushroom enthusiasts, whether they are at home or in the woods.
