If you're at all interested in foraging for mushrooms, this is your book. It's very easy to use, very well-written, very informative, and very entertaining. I have used it as not only a field guide, but also as bedtime reading, as a cookbook, and as inspiration for mushroom adventures. The simple key is clear, and the author gives you specific guidelines for knowing (or not knowing) that you've found an edible or otherwise interesting fungus.

Combined with some hands-on guidance (whether from your local mycological society, the Audobon Society, or my very own school, Arctos), this is a great springboard for making your life more gourmet and more hike-filled at the same time. Plus, if you live in Portland, mushroom-hunting may even make you look forward to the rainy (read: bountiful) months!
