Mushrooms of the Redwood Coast A Comprehensive Guide to the Fungi of Coastal California By: Noah Siegel and Christian Schwarz The cover is pretty with all the trees and at the bottom some pictures of pretty colored mushrooms. The colorful pictures inside this book are unique. I was hoping they also tell if the mushrooms could be found in other states as well, but that wasn’t the case. Maybe they write another book with mushrooms around the USA that would be great. On page 254 there are mushrooms in a group called Lactarius deliciosus group. The one at the bottom is really weird looking. There are so many beautiful pictures of the mushrooms around Calif. You’ll be amazed. As you read through the book and look at the pictures of the mushrooms you’ll find that Noah and Christian wrote a description of the mushrooms. They tell of the texture and taste of the mushroom IF they are edible and where they are found like under trees and what kinds of trees or under leave or bushes or even by rivers. They give you information like edible or not edible or not known, well to me the not know means don’t eat them. The explanation they wrote for the mushrooms are very well written. For you people that live in Calif. and love mushrooms this would be a great book for you then you could go out and have a day of mushroom hunting. I recommend this book highly for anyone that is interested in mushrooms even if you don’t live in Calf. This book is very interesting and beautiful pictures of the Fungi. HAPPY READING!!!! I received this book free from blogging for books for an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review just an honest one. The opinions I have expressed are entirely my own and no one else’s. 5 Stars ISBN 978-1-60774-817-5
