9781560444664: Rockhounding Montana (Rockhounding Series)

Montana is a rockhound's dream, where inland seas once deposited fossils and minerals that the forces of geology have since laid bare. Rockhounding Montana, formerly The Rockhound's Guide to Montana, can lead you to the Yellowstone River, where you can comb the gravel for Montana agate, an official state gemstone, or to the badlands along Hell Creek, where paleontologists have found dinosaur remains. The book, by rockhound and educator Robert Feldman, contains information on the sapphire mines along the Missouri River near Helena, the limestone caves in the Pryor Mountains, as well as brief histories of mining at Butte and other locations. Even novices can find their way to crystals, garnets, geodes, and fossilized wood. You'll discover remote mountain streams where you can pan for gold or hunt for fossils. Rockhounding Montana covers popular and commercial areas as well as many little known sites on public land. The book gives directions, includes a glossary, maps, and directories to museums, rock shops, and rock clubs. The beginner finds a complete introduction to this fascinating hobby and the expert discovers an excellent sourcebook in Rockhounding Montana. Bring it along on your next geological journey.
