"The first comprehensive guide to a major group of wild mushrooms, the boletes, in North America. . . . Amateurs and professionals concerned with boletes will consider this book a standard reference."

"A must for bolete lovers of all persuasions."
Plant Science Bulletin

North American Boletes is the first comprehensive guide to an extraordinary and highly prized group of mushrooms known for their beautiful colors, distinctive features, relative abundance, and edibility. The scope of this work goes beyond the identification of species. The authors consider the symbiotic relationship that boletes share with higher plants and trees, their geographical distribution, and new information regarding the macrochemical test reactions of the boletes; they also describe several new species. The book’s combination of aesthetically appealing and scientifically accurate color photographs and extensive descriptions makes it a standard reference work for bolete identification in North America.
