This is a great book to bring along with you while hiking in the Pacific Northwest, especially during September, October, and November. The book does its best to try and make identifying mushrooms easy, but there are so many species that it can be overwhelming. If anything, this book will help you become familiar with some of the more unique looking and common mushrooms.
