The Lake Superior agate is a gem even a child can recognize and find, which is one reason agate picking is so popular. Another reasons is because many folks are fascinated with these beautiful rocks. This is an excellent book for anyone who shares that fascination. This slim volume is a compendium of agate information, including how to identify various agates, where to look for them, a list of local lapidary shops and a gallery of famous agates. Most North Shore rock pickers will consider this book indispensable.—Shawn Perich
