  • Rockhounding Wyoming

    Although the rockhounding treasures are many in this vast and sparsely populated state, author Kenneth Graham points out that 'sometimes the joy is in the search itself.' The 75 sites described in this guide will take you across the red desert to the high mountain majesty of the Big Horns and Wind Rivers as well as the geologic wonders of Yellowstone National Park. Graham, a former hardrock miner, developed an interest in rocks at an early age, and he shares his enthusiasm for rockhounding and his appreciation for the diverse Wyoming landscape that holds the treasure. Each description provides detailed information complete with maps on how to find the remote as well as popular digs, what will likely be found there, the tools to bring, the best season to visit, the appropriate vehicle to drive, or when to lace up your hiking boots to get to those out-of-the-way places. Be sure to take along Rockhounding Wyoming to plan your next rockhounding adventure

  • Guide to Rocks and Minerals of the Northwest

    This guide is intended to show some of the much-prized rocks and minerals of the northwest. Some are valued for their beauty when cut and polished. Others are prized for the economic value of the metals they contain, such as copper in chalcopyrite, or of some physical property of the mineral itself, such as the fibrous nature of asbestos. Still other minerals are valued for their crystal form, or simply as examples of the great diversity in the mineral kingdom. 33 pages, color pictures.
