Summary

A book all about rocks and minerals, in the expert reader strand.

Much more than a simple spotters' guide! ROCKS AND MINERALS will enthrall young rock enthusiasts with amazing information about how rocks help us understand Earth and our own history, from early fossils to the treasure troves of pirates and the building of spacecraft. Superb artwork shows what is happening out of sight beneath Earth's surface in volcanoes, caves, and mines. Specially photographed galleries show off the beauty of rocks and minerals, and a simple key enables readers to identify any rock.
