John Plischke's informative, easy-to-read text and award-winning photographs take the guesswork out of identifying wild mushrooms. And when you get it right, there's no better eatin' than a fresh, wild Morel. For an added treat, John brings you from field to kitchen with some of his favorite mushroom recipes.
