He has some amazing photos in his book, easily the best photos of any guide. He also covers slime molds more than most mushroom guides, which is cool. His book is an excellent third or fourth field guide once you have a couple main ones like Peterson and Audubon or maybe Mushrooms Demystified.

My copy of Barron's book is getting worn out, as I use it a lot.

Going to try my first bite of a sulphur mushroom...chicken of the woods, just one bite as suggested and wait 24 hours to see if my belly gets upset. Wish me luck!

Havalotta, make sure it's thoroughly cooked, not just a quick fry for a couple minutes like you can do with tame mushrooms. They taste great, hope you like it.

YUM YUM... That was REALLY tasty! Nice texture, good and meaty, no slipperiness what so ever like a some mushrooms I've tried. It actually is.... comparable to eating chicken as was stated!

I'll be looking forward to collecting more of those in the future now that I'm familiar with them and have tried them. From what I've read you just trim off the outer 2 inches and leave the rest attached to where you found them so will have to trim off the older portions of the already fried saved for us in the fridge for tonight!

It has been wet and warm here. Lots of fungi. No, I am not planning to eat any of them!

So much beauty in a word that conjures up, for many, images of, well, something unpleasant...

I'm yearning to go for a stroll in the woods now after looking at your enticing photos there turttle. Been awhile since I've wandered freely and am missing it. I need myself a good nature fix.
