All these topics are covered entertainingly and accompanied by excellent color photos and illustrations. This book has a hard cover.
General Fossil Collection
Selection of 15 fossils to illustrate the major life forms present throughout geologic history. A descriptive key sheet and geologic time chart introduce students to the basic fossils and match the fossil to the era.

Field Geology Illustrated, 2nd Edition
This is one of our highly recommended
books. Field Geology Illustrated, 2nd Edition
is a reliable, in depth field reference for professional geologists, serious amateur geologists, and other environmental scientists. This entirely new second edition represents the first detailed, comprehensive book on field geology in 20 years. Richly illustrated with 688 high-quality photographs and 300 interpretative sketches, this 704-page book is printed on glossy paper to show important strucutural and textural features. Contents include marine geological surveys, plutonic rocks, volcanic rocks, continental deposits, marine deposits, deformed rocks (joints, faults, folds, cleavage) weathering processes and soils, ground water, mineral deposits, and the public land survey system. The iterpretative sketches pull out the detail which you'd normally miss in the photos.
Field Geology Illustrated, 2n Edition was designed to serve as a field reference to aid in recognizing, interpreting, and describing geologic features at the outcrop. Emphasis is on the study of mesocopic features that can be viewed at outcrop scale rather than large structures or landscapes. This book is not an exhaustive or comprehensive treatise on the subject of field geology, but instead cover the information necessary to understand and describe most outcrops...
Field Geology Illustrated should be useful as a complementary text for any field-related geoscience course such as physical geology, field geology, petrology, and structural geology. The detailed descriptions, illustrations and photographs of geologic features in their field setting will be particularly useful (AG: on a field trip, vacation, or) where field trips are not feasible.
This book is also intended for anyone who needs a good basic review of field geology including graduate students preparing for field mapping, professional geologists who wish to bring their skill up to date quickly and easily and even serious amateur geologists (AG: We believe this is useful to anyone interested in geology in the field!)Self study will be particularly rewarding because an interpretative sketch and detailed description is included with each photograph.
