Can anyone recommend an ID Guide for NW New York State region? Hopefully I'll be able to hunt mushrooms near Lake George for a couple of days around the start of August whilst on my travels.
ID Guide for NW New York State?

I was not particularly planning on hunting for magic, just general field ID for the fun of it. Spore print collection for the fun if it. I was hoping to find a field guide in print ideally. I'm a bit paranoid about taking my smartphone in case boarder guards decide to get nosey so internet access whilst out and about may not be possible.
