  • 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.

  • 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.
