For 50 million years Florida was home to hordes of strange and wonderful animals. Their remains accumulated in rivers, springs, and oceans. Today fossilized bones and teeth wash up along streams, banks, and beaches and lie in limerock quarries. This guide teaches how and where to hunt fossils—with maps, means of identification, and the history of these fossil treasures. Complete, accurate, and fully illustrated, including an outstanding identification section.

Author: Barry S. Kues
Because almost every part of New Mexico is rich in fossils, collectors from all over the Land of Enchantment will want to own this useful book, the first authoritative and well-illustrated guide to the state's fossils. It provides a nontechnical introduction to the basic principles of studying and collecting fossils along with a guide to the kinds of fossils one is likely to find within the state. The author's advice on collecting fossils ranges from the minutely practical--how to carry your specimens home and prepare them--to the ethics of collecting. He defines and explains the nature of fossils and fossilization, the study of paleontology, and the kinds of rocks in which fossils are found. He explains the geologic time scale and the significance of fossils to understanding the history of life, and describes the main groups of vertebrate, invertebrate, and plant fossils and their classification. The longest section of the book is a guide to New Mexico fossils of each geologic period. For every period represented in the state's rocks, Kues provides a summary of important paleontologic events, a map showing the distribution of outcrops, and a general description of the types of fossils one is likely to find in strata of the period. More than 500 common and characteristic fossil genera are illustrated to facilitate identification of fossils observed or collected in rocks of each age.
