Amateur Geology Books

New Books Have Been Added - 11/23/02

I think that the Roadside Geology series is a wonderful collection. It makes geology easy to understand and appreciate as you drive along the highways and interstates. Each book basically covers one state. Pick where you live or where you will be vacationing. I have also included a few field guides to basic geology.

New! Here are some interesting magazines that might be interesting:
Locating Gold, Gems & Minerals
Treasure Hunting

Catergories
