Minerals, Fossils and Fluorescents of Arizona: A Field Guide for Collectors has over 90 collecting sites along with photographs and topographical maps including the GPS coordinates for each collecting location. Each collecting site also has a difficulty scale which provides the amount of effort to explore each site.

The geology of the geological formations is discussed. Don't care about the geology? Let's face it, collecting sites, especially those with GPS locations get well collected. But most collectors stop at the explicit location. Knowing the whys of the geology at a main collecting sites gives you the knowledge to go "over the hill" and find similar geology and locations. Perhaps you passed something very similar on the way to the site?
This book becomes the knowledgeable field trip leader you need to take you to the sites and help you independently locate your own collecting locations.
