For all you folks who have been emailing me with mushroom questions: I found this book recently. I bought a copy on the spot. And I have to say, this book is a treasure trove for both novice and expert mycophiles! It contains a huge amount of information about the life cycles and identification of mushrooms, but more significantly, it has hundreds if not thousands of excellently executed full color photos of those mushrooms. I own dozens of mushroom books and some, like “Mushrooms Demystified”, contain extraordinary details of information. But they tend to lack enough photos to allow the reader to really build a mental picture. This book, “Kingdom of the Fungi”, is gloriously illustrated as well as chock full of essential information. It’s hard cover. And for a mere $30, you absolutely cannot go wrong.
