CHAPTER 7: DESERT PAVEMENT
In 1997 I embarked upon my first international meteorite hunting expedition with a fellow I had never met in person, named Steve Arnold. We spent three weeks in the harrowing Atacama Desert, in search of pallasites, and nothing in my life would ever be the same again.

CHAPTER 13: CRATER AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD
With an age of 35 million years, and a diameter of 100 kilometers, the Popigai meteorite crater in northern Siberia is one of the largest and oldest on Earth. In 1999 I joined one of my heroes, Professor Roy Gallant, on a hair-raising journey to the crater at the edge of the world.

CHAPTER 22: THE LONG HUNT
Chapter 22, "The Long Hunt," chronicles a five-week expedition to Finland, Sweden, Poland, and Russia, during which we filmed four complete episodes of Meteorite Men, and encountered all manner of strange situations.

CHAPTER 2: HOW TO IDENTIFY METEORITES
Recognizing and understanding meteorites is the first step toward finding them. Chapter 2 of Meteorite Hunting is a beautifully illustrated guide to meteorite identification. Pages 14 and 15 [pictured above] cover fusion crust.

CHAPTER 7: METEORITE CRATERS AND IMPACT PITS
Exploring craters is one of the most exciting and fascinating parts of meteorite science. Meteorite Hunting explains the difference between meteorite craters and impact pits, describes how to hunt a crater for meteorite fragments, and discusses how suspected new craters are identified. Pages 36 and 37 [pictured above] include photos of the mysterious Whitecourt Crater in northern Canada, and the spectacular Monturaqui Crater in Chile's Atacama Desert.

CHAPTER 12: COLD DESERT FINDS, HOT DESERT HUNTING, AND DRY LAKE BEDS
Meteorite Hunting contains three chapters devoted to meteorite hunting strategies. Chapter 12 examines dry lake beds and hot deserts, and includes valuable intel on how hunters can increase their chances of making a new meteorite find. [pictured above] Pages 56 and 57
