With a cover like this, one can only assume that that David Arora, author of All That the Rain Promises and More. . . is a keen enough mushroom enthusiast to write "a hip pocket guide" for identifying the wild mushrooms of Western North America. This book is one of the best guides for the beginning mushroom collector and an indispensible aid to the seasoned veteran, as it contains full color photos, lists of key identifying features, notes on the edibility of each mushroom listed, common names and cross references for related fungi. Touting Arora's personal philosophy to "put the fun back in fungi," the book also contains recipes and cooking hints, quotes and vignettes about mushroom hunting that help make the mushroom descriptions tangible. All That the Rain Promises and More. . . is the pocket version of Arora's benchmark Mushrooms Demystified. Perfect for any field foray!
