Well I used to walk every day over the fields and I sawxmany stones, and I often wondered what they were, even more so I'm in my garden, and I told my neighbour, about the book, I found to stones of interest, and I have found out that one is in fact iron, while the latter one was a kind of sandstone.

This is a gift for someone who is always picking up peddles and thinking over how it looks as it does, so should be well received. Good quality little book and not too big so can fit in a large pocket.

Unusual book. Has an area on each page where you or a grandchild can note where and when they found a specimen discussed in the book.
