About the Author
Dan R. Lynch has a degree in graphic design with emphasis on photography from the University of Minnesota Duluth. But before his love of art and writing came a passion for rocks and minerals, developed during his lifetime growing up in his parents’ rock shop in Two Harbors, Minnesota. Combining the two aspects of his life seemed a natural choice, and he enjoys researching, writing about, and taking photographs of rocks and minerals. Working with his father, Bob Lynch, a respected veteran of Lake Superior’s agate-collecting community, Dan spearheads their series of rock and mineral field guides―definitive guidebooks that help amateurs “decode” the complexities of geology and mineralogy. He also takes special care to ensure that his photographs complement the text and always represent each rock or mineral exactly as it appears in person. He currently lives in Madison, Wisconsin, with his wife, Julie, where he works as a writer and photographer.

The binding is stitched and is easy to search through. There are around 200 colorful images with a variety of methods & descriptions to help you identify about any rock you will find while out exploring the desert. Beside each of the descriptive photographs is a page simply defining common traits, colors, hardness/streak, general size, type of landscape where that rock is found & how common or rare it is to find. Also noted are any unique descriptions, specific locations to look for certain rocks along with a small graphic of Arizona indicating occurrences of that rock or mineral. A helpful glossary, index & biblography with recommended reading suggestions was an appreciated inclusion too. This book will always go in my pack when I head out on desert excursions.
