When I accepted my now-failed rockhound book contract (internal link), a chapter was to be on places to visit and collect in the Southwest. Since the end of that contract, I have been working on enlarging that chapter. I thought of self-publishing the result but I have decided that that is too much work and hassle. I’ve put all of that writing online for free instead.
At Southwestrockhounding.com (external link) I have put up each state file in .pdf as well as all of the state files together. The result is 310 pages in total, if one decides to download the entire book. Although nearly all of the places I mention are closed, much BLM and USFS land remains open. And the files are good to plan for the future, which we all hope will be brighter than today.
