All the Rain Promises and More
An illustrated guide to identifying 200 Western mushrooms - whether edible, poisonous, or medicinal - by their key features. This colorful and personable guide by renowned mushroom expert David Aurora is the perfect size for taking into the field. Each mushroom is attended by a concise guide to key visual features, location of growth, edibility, and flavor profile. All The Rain Promises cross references with Aurora’s “mushroom bible” Mushrooms Demystified, making it an easy quick-reference for identifying a specimen in the woods, and then returning home to look up further taxonomic details in its companion volume.
"[All That the Rain Promises and More] is certainly the best guide to fungi, and may in fact be a long lasting masterpiece in guide writing for all subjects." - Roger McKnight, New York Times
