Everybody Needs A Rock

Everybody needs a rock -- at least thats the way this particular author feels about it in presenting her own highly individualistic rules for finding just the right rock for you.

"With her spare, poetic prose, the author gives us ten rules for picking our own special rocks, leading us through smell, taste, feel and sight. Her locale is southwestern United States and Peter Parnall's illustrations match it well. His lines trail off into the vast spaces and his figures, especially the rocks, seem to grow out of that space. Baylor's ten rules, stated with a deadpan humor and delight in the beauty inherent in those rocks, lead the reader to look more carefully at them, using all their senses to make those observations.This is an indispensable book for classroom units on rocks and minerals, of course." - Carol Hurst,
