Wild Mushrooming A guide for Foragers by Alison Pouliot and Tom May
Mushrooming is something Ive always wanted to learn and now Im interstate where its much more common Ive booked into several courses. I wanted to grab a book that covered foraging, poisonous species, lookalikes and cooking and not have to buy ten different books. Ill still have to grab a few more books to cover overseas species but I think this one will be a good reference point for a beginner to start learning about Australian species.

Chapter 4 covers major groups of fungi, chapter 5 features to look for, chapter 6 names and identification, chapter 8 poisonous fungi, chapter 9 edible species and look a likes with very nice pictures.
