However, the pictures are only black and white which really detracts from identification. I would much prefer color photos.
Still the book is worth the money as the author (a geologist) is very knowledgeable. He also reveals numerous locations for
hunting various rocks, gems and minerals.
I visited three locations presented in this guide, carefully following maps and directions, but to no sucess.
Perhaps it's all due to some lack of direction or rock-spotting skills on my part, but I found the directions rather vague and the site geology did not appear to fit the rocks the author described; I found no trace of agate at any site. Mind you, I have some experience in geology and finding agate. But, after fruitless hours of searching, I can only conclude this book is more useful as an excuse to explore the backroads of Washington than actually find agate or other gemstones.
