The Field Guide to Alaska Rocks and Minerals.

This is a completely new guidebook to Alaska rocks and minerals. Written by an Alaskan prospector, miner, rockhound, and collector, there are hundreds of sites listed that have never been published before, and have been visited by a select few.

These are the choice sites and collecting areas, selected from over 8,000 mines, prospects, and mineral occurrences in Alaska.

There are also chapters providing information to getting started if you are new to collecting, a Driveguide to the Petersville Road, as well as reference sources and places both online and in person where you may get more information.

The areas covered by the book, which are the most accessible parts of Alaska, have detailed maps, descriptions, and numerous color photos to help guide you. The maps show access, collection locations, and other important information. You can easily print them out on your home printer as you need them, too.

Your satisfaction is guaranteed.
