“The new Mushrooms of British Columbia is a very welcome and useful addition to our understanding of the world of nature. I have always felt that it is important to know the names of our neighbours of other species. Mushrooms are a perfect topic to observe and learn about. The illustrations are clear and large enough to see well. The photos are colourful, sometimes humorous and always meaningful. This book will expand the pleasure and knowledge of anyone who spends time in nature.”
—Robert Bateman, wildlife artist
“A first in my lifetime—a guide to the mushrooms of BC! A long time coming, but so worth the wait. Mushrooms of British Columbia is a glorious book!
You NEED this book . . . Mushrooms has everything: very large and wonderfully descriptive photos, and 350 species accurately described, with a total of 850 mushrooms and other fungi of BC.
You will WANT this book for the side stories on special people and places in BC, rare species and the wry wit of the authors. ”
—Britt Bunyard, publisher and editor-in-chief of FUNGI magazine
“For amateurs and professionals, Mushrooms of British Columbia will be the go-to book for safe and accurate mushroom identification—with an extra dose of humour—to make your forays even more fun. I enthusiastically recommend this gorgeous field guide, which is clearly the best book for sojourns into the forests of BC. Andy MacKinnon and Kem Luther have co-created a masterpiece.”
—Paul Stamets, author of six books including Mycelium Running: How Mushrooms Can Help Save the World
“Interspersed among the pages are various odds and ends, including asides on various aspects of mushroom biology or ecology, mushroom folklore, poems, stories, and entertaining pictures . . . I think Mushrooms of British Columbia [is] the must-have book for mushroom enthusiasts and those eager to broaden their knowledge of nature in British Columbia and the northwestern United States.”
