Mushrooms of the Upper Midwest: A Simple Guide to Common Mushrooms by Teresa Marrone
Hundreds of full-color photos with easy-to-understand text make this a great visual guide to learning about nearly 400 species of common wild mushrooms found in the Upper Midwestern states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. The species (from Morel Mushrooms to Shelf Mushrooms) are organized by shape, then by color, so you can identify them by their visual characteristics. Plus, with the Top Edibles and Top Toxics sections, you’ll begin to learn which are the edible wild mushrooms. The information in the book, written by Teresa Marrone and Kathy Yerich, is accessible to beginners but useful for even experienced mushroom seekers.
