"Discovering Fossils: How to Find and Identify Remains of the Prehistoric Past", by Frank A. Garcia & Donald S. Miller, Stackpole Books, PA 1998, ISBN: 978-0-8117-2800-3, PB 190/212 pgs. Index 2 pgs. Inveiglements include profusely illustrated scientific drawings of flora & fauna by Jasper Burns. 9" x 6".

This book's principle elements are stated in its subtitle, and this sets it apart from most treatises on fossils and paleontology. The dedication and professionalism of senior author Garcia is documented by his personal discovery of 30 previously undiscovered species of prehistoric animals. The illustrated text with accompanying tabulations of fossil Exhibits, Shows, Clubs, & collecting sites is very informative and nicely complements chapters on scientific terminologies of time, jargon, finding fossils, law, ethics, etiquette & useful tips on buying and selling fossils.

For a first book encompassing this rapidly growing hobby (and business) of paleontology, "Discovering Fossils" is highly recommended. I wondered about omission of .COM references but, perhaps, they are less reliable and too ephemeral compared to the printed word - no problem.

The Book was very detailed and informative. It covered the authors' many tips from many years of experiance in the finding some amazing fossils. The books gives information on how to join clubs/groups and ideas for places to search and how to go about it, including dangers of searching in some areas.

Hubby (a Geologist) wanted this book to introduce the beauty and mystery of fossils to his nephew, and reports it's everything he hoped it would be. The book has engaging text, detailed illustrations, and is easy to understand. He looks forward to sharing it with the young'uns ;D
