Peterson Field Guides are designed to work in the field, and every illustration, every word, is directed to that end. For each guide, an author with expertise in the subject and an experienced artist work closely with the editors to ensure that both text and illustrations are accurate. In A Field Guide to Mushrooms of North America more than 1,000 species of mushrooms are described in detail. Over 700 paintings and drawings reveal subtle field marks that cannot be captured in photographs.
