The book is basically a compendium of sites for isolating and collecting Minerals, Fossels and Fourescent minerals within Arizona. Would be a great resource for the Mineral specimen collector.

Minerals of Arizona: A Field Guide for Collectors, Neil R. The author states, This book is intended to be a field guide for active collectors, not a scientific mineralogy text. Consequently the greatest contribution the author makes is the presentation of documented, well-illustrated collecting sites clearly is a book about places you can go and rocks you can find

USGS topographical maps, b&w photographs of site locations, and 16 pages of color mineral photographs highlight this guide to 57 sites in Arizona for mineral collectors. Prefaced by chapters on rockhound etiquette, mineralogy, and scientific properties of site specimens, this guide is designed for both the novice rockhound and the experienced collector. Bearce, a professional prospector and collector, also presents his site difficulty scale with which he rates travel to and exploration of the site, and the difficulty in extracting the specimens.

Envias
A good reference, and if someone really wants to work really hard looking for specimens then this book will suffice as a guide to locations to do so.

What I would suggest is that one purchase this book, learn where the sites are, their particular geologic peculiarities that may have been the reason for the specimen's to occur there and seek out other similar sites using other contact geology maps and references.

On the other hand, it does serve as a usefull "excuse" to get out and explore the great outdoors.
