In this work, the authors offer a myriad of "how-tos" when stalking and using mushrooms, from identifying an Old Man in the Woods, to sauteing a tasty Volvariella bombycina. Besides providing both the Latin and common names and descriptions of 235 species of mushroom found in the state, they have included 150 colour photographs of common and not-so-common species, a non-technical key for identification, a calendar of fungal fruiting seasons, and a list of all 548 species that have been located in Kansas. A guide to Latin names is included. Mushroom hunters should find a number of useful tips here, whether they want to eat their quarry, photograph it, or examine it under a microscope. The authors have included an overview of the geography and climate of Kansas, a history of mycology in the state, and practical advice. They have structured their information to suit the novice, the advanced amateur and the professional mycologist, offering general explanations and advice, as well as descriptions of mushrooms found not only in Kansas but also throughout the country, particularly in the Rockies.
