'This book has been written with the object of helping the observer interested in the study of Geology. But he cannot be too strongly reminded that geology is not learned from books, but that knowledge must be obtained from first-hand information. in these pages the author describes the rocks, minerals and fossils so that the observer may be aided in recognizing things which he seeks - and sees.'
