Anybody got any good ideas for wild mushroom books.  It's too bad Samuel Thayer didn't touch on that subject, but here in Minnesota.  It would be a great thing to have.

I have a bunch of books about wild mushrooms but this is definitely the best one to help easily identify the main wild mushrooms growing in the midwest.

Lone pine has great field guides. I have the one on mushrooms, and have found it a great help, it covers edibles as well as other families of mushrooms. http://www.lonepinepublishing.com/cat/9781551051994

An easy beginners mushroom to start with is the giant puffball. No poisonous lookalikes and make sure it's white all the way through or it's past it's prime.

I picked this one yesterday and had it for lunch.  Mushroom steaks fried in butter can't be beat.







I don't know if you get them over in PNW, but they are everywhere right now on the east coast.
