KIRKUS REVIEW

A hobby book for young collectors, which might help focus scattered interest in matters geological into a useful hobby which would lead somewhere. The book is based to some extent on a Fieldston School experiment, so its values are tested and proved. Identification -- uses -- how to collect -- what to collect --different sources of minerals -- procedure -- equipment. Then more specifically, different kinds of minerals are taken into consideration, with pertinent data on each.
