An excerpt from the back of the book: "As William A. Kappele reminds us in the introduction to Rockhounding Utah, Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Accordingly, he gives us "just the facts" that rock-hounds need to know to find their way to the best collecting sites in the Beehive State and what mineral samples, rocks, and formations are to be found there. Still, most readers will find between the lines that Kappele can’t quite squelch his enthusiasm for the grandeur of Utah’s 54.4 exposed formations, its canyons walls etched with fossils, and the spires and arches of the Needles District in Canyonlands National park.
