Bright, bold photographs and concise text together describe important features and enhance an extended graph provided for use as an identification key.

I'm not only the author but also the illustrator of this book, which describes mushrooms I have found over many years of collecting, mostly around our cabin at Sandy Lake (Alberta).
Since the late '60s I have been taking my paints, easel and boards into the woods. When I spotted a mushroom new to me, I sat down and painted it in its own environment, always life size. When the painting was finished I collected a few of the mushrooms in different stages of development, and used them back at home to record further details in my sketchbook and to prepare dried specimens to send to several academic contacts who used them in their research.
I have found species numbering in the thousands over the years. I have a background in botany, so I was familiar with classification systems. The classification of fungi changes quite a bit as knowledge advances, and I have developed a bookkeeping system based on card files and my sketchbooks to keep track of what I've found and where it fits.
