Hundreds of full color photographs of Carolina mushrooms

Information on mushroom edibility and toxicity

Microscopic information

An overview of the Carolinas’ role in the history of American mycology

Here, at last, is the field guide for North and South Carolina mushrooms, from the mountains to the coast, presented in a single, portable volume.
