Editorial Reviews

Chesapeake Children
Includes everything from scientific explanation of the nature of fossils and rock formations to a practical guide for finding the necessary tools, sizing up sites, identifying fossils and displaying them back home.

Chesapeake Bay Magazine
An amateur rock sleuth for 30 years, Burns successfully conveys his love for and admiration of fossils in this book. His pencil drawings are clear, clean, and incredibly detailed. Advancing from a rock history of the Chesapeake region, the book includes specific sites for fossil hunting, tips on proper tools, and advice on identifying and displaying a collection.

Easton Star Democrat - John Goodspeed
The definitive regional guide for amateur fossil hunters in Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, and parts of Delaware and Pennsylvania.

Booknews
