Zusatztext “Excellent descriptions! taxonomic synonyms! [and] habitat descriptions.” — Choice “The book is beautiful. I know it’s practical! and it’s got a lot of information! but just to flip through it and look at the diversity of the mushrooms—I find it really interesting.” — The Weekend Gardener “Comprehensively definitive and thoroughly user friendly.” — Midwest Book Review “Offers the best combination of sufficiently comprehensive descriptions and large! close at hand photos.” — The Mycophile “Most new publications on mushrooms [were] of little help until Baroni published his Mushrooms of the Northeastern United States and Eastern Canada in 2017. . . . made mushroom study as interesting for me as when I first saw Lincoff's book back in 1981.” — Orillia Packet and Times “Concise and informative field guide that surely will become a standard reference for mushroom hunters in the Northeast!” — The New Jersey Mycological Association? “This volume is a clear and impressive standout which can be recommended without reservation. . . . It deserves to become a standard reference and will doubtless soon be seen as a faithful companion volume on forays throughout its target area.” — Long Island Mycological Club? “A wise and user-friendly book. . . truly wonderful.” — Coventry Courier?
