Elias Fries

Mushroom hunting wouldn't be the same as it is without Elias Fries. Elias Fries is the father of modern mycology. A true pioneer he will be duly honoured in the Swedish edition of Mushrooming without Fear. The Swedish title is Lätt och säkker svampplockning and was published in January 2007. There is an excellent website about Elias Fries here. Picture: courtesy Elias Fries Ättlingar.
