Gem Trails of Oregon Revised Edition by James R Mitchell

tomkzinti, February 20, 2007

This book is trash, only good for location names. The instructions and directions to visit collecting sites are terrible, some sites are misnamed in the book and most of the sites are either closed, devoid of minerals or completely inaccessible. The "updated 1998" version is STILL outdated. In the book it says US Creek on the Calapooya River is vehicle accessible via a USFS road...the bridge over the river was washed out in 1994. There is NO vehicular access to that creek now and there are trees growing in the middle of the road. I've BEEN THERE. Just one example. Have a look at Tim Fisher's site at dont%20buy%20Gem%20Trails.htm for more details on what's wrong with this book.
