Can I eat that mushroom?

book cover: Guide to wild foods and useful plants

Guide to Wild Foods and Useful Plants

There are wild mushrooms in my back yard. There are wild mushrooms in wooded areas and along rivers and streams.

There are wild berries galore. But how do you tell the difference between edible and poisonous wild foods.

Christopher Nyerges' book Guide to wild foods and useful plants will teach you the answer to that question.

Nyerges also gives direction on where to look for certain items, and their associated medicinal qualities. The book includes colour photos. 

So, the next time you see a sprouting of wild mushrooms in your back yard or along your walk take a moment to identify them to see if you should chop them up for your next omlet!
