Bolete Mushroom in Algonquin Park

I spotted this Orange Birch Bolete (Leccinum Versipelle) at the Park and stupidly didn't pick it. All my mushroom books say it is edible (but not choice, so I don't feel all that bad). I likely wouldn't have eaten it (I'm a big chicken when it comes to wild mushrooms and only eat 4 or 5 species I have eaten before and am absolutely sure of) but at the very least I could've brought it home to draw.

It's cute as a button. Get it?

Could you recommend a particular book on mushrooms that I could bring into Algonquin Park on my trips? Perhaps you could just e-mail me or leave a comment on my blog?
That looks like a tasty mushroom, but I'd be scared I'd end up eating a Death's Cap or something scary like that...
