Pebble spotting - a simple pleasure. This is charming, knowledgeable and witty guide to everything you didn't know there was to know about pebbles. The author Clarence Ellis ruminates on what a pebble actually is, before describing how they are formed, advising on the best pebble-spotting grounds in the UK, helping to identify individual stones, and giving tips on the necessary kit. From cherts from your schists, onyx to agate, understanding the humble pebble makes a trip to the beach, lake-side or river bank simply that little bit more fascinating. First published in 1954, this beautiful reissue includes an illuminating foreword by Robert Macfarlane. Not illustrated.
