“[All That the Rain Promises and More] is certainly the best guide to fungi, and may in fact be a long lasting masterpiece in guide writing for all subjects.”—Roger McKnight, The New York Times

Mushrooms appeal to all kinds of people—and so will this handy pocket guide, which includes key information for more than 200 Western mushrooms


Over 200 edible and poisonous mushrooms are depicted with simple checklists of their identifying features, as David Arora celebrates the fun in fungi with the same engaging bend of wit and wisdom, fact and fancy, that has made his comprehensive guide, Mushrooms Demystified, the mushroom hunter’s bible.

“The best guide for the beginner. I’d buy it no matter where I lived in North America.”—Whole Earth Catalog
David Arora is an American naturalist, writer, and a biologist who specializes in the study of fungi. The author of two popular books on the identification of wild fungi—Mushrooms Demystified and All That the Rain Promises and More—Arora has also written about conservation issues relating to recreational and commercial mushroom cultivation.
