Publisher Comments:

A complete guide to finding, collecting, and preparing the states gems & minerals

Rockhounding Idaho is a must-have book for anyone interested in collecting rocks, minerals, fossils, and gold in the Gem State. Completely up-to-date with over 200 GPS coordinates in ninety-nine collecting locales, it covers popular and widely known fee-dig operations as well as four-wheel-drive adventures into the desert, and long winding drives through the mountains. The result is a complete and accurate guide to the states vast riches.

The author—a long-time field collector in the Pacific Northwest and an award-winning writer—clearly explains the broad outlines of Idahos many collecting locales and mining districts, and provides an appreciation for the geology underneath. You can use this guide to plan expeditions straight across the state or to devise looping road trips that cover a single region in great detail. From agates to zeolites, from garnets to gold, Rockhounding Idaho is the ideal resource for ­rockhounds of all ages and experience levels.
