  • Rockhounding Nevada

    Veteran rockhound and author William A. Kappele provides detailed directions to each site, concise information about the materials and gem stones you may find there, what tools to bring, the best season to visit, what kind of vehicle you will need to get there, and a wealth of other information to tantalize beginners as well as the most ardent rockhounds. After over 30 years of scouring the American West for lapidary fodder, Kappele says many of the sites in this book are by far some of the best he's yet encountered. May your journey be fruitful and your collecting bag be heavy on the way home, and be sure that somewhere in that bag, among your rocks, you haven't forgotten your copy of Rockhounding Nevada.
