The award-winning guide to recovering meteorites, written by one of the best-known personalities in the field and host of Science Channel’s hit television series Meteorite Men.
Meteorite Hunting: How To Find Treasure From Space won a 2012 IPPY Award as one of the best independently-published science books of the year.
This guide includes detailed information on how to locate, excavate, and identify rocks from space, and is filled with insider information from an internationally recognized meteorite specialist. Meteorite Hunting is packed with scores of never-before-seen photos, including behind-the-scenes pictures from Season One and Season Two of Meteorite Men.
If you have ever dreamed of finding your own space rock then this is the book for you. In 16 chapters, Meteorite Hunting compares and explains different hunting strategies, examines strewnfields and craters, and discusses the best field equipment. It also clarifies the importance of research, advises prospective hunters how to go about gaining permission to hunt on private land, describes how meteorites are named and classified, and includes a fully illustrated visual guide to meteorite identification in the lab and in the field.
"In 1997, on our first expedition to Chile’s Atacama Desert, I learned that Geoff was a natural at meteorite hunting. It wasn’t until later, however, when Geoff wrote an amazing account of that excursion in a magazine article, that I also began to appreciate his literary skills. If you enjoy Geoff on Meteorite Men you are going to love this book. No commercials, no meteorwrongs, no me interrupting him with offers of beef jerky—just Geoff waxing eloquent about these remarkable treasures from space. It doesn’t get any better than this!"
