Find out where to look, what to look for, what to bring, how to get there and what you can expect to find. And along the way you can expect to enjoy some of the natural wonders and earthly treasures that only Nevada has to offer.

Sites are divided into four geographical regions and are presented with directions, rockhounding tips, descriptive text, updated highway and site maps, and numerous black and white photos. Also included are a handy mineral locator index, a glossary, lists of museums, rock clubs, government agencies and a full-color insert of rock, fossil and mineral specimens found within Nevada's prolific borders.
