Review: The Rockhound's HandbookUser Review - Frank - Goodreads
This is a good book for those who know little to nothing about rock hounding. It gives you some basics in geology, mineral formation and how to find them. Offers some collecting techniques etc. It has some nice illustrations and color photos. But I'm not sure I got a lot out of it. Read full review
