Reviews - What do customers think about National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Fossils?

National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Fossils   Jun 9, 2008
An older book, never revised in 15 years it seems. Still appreciated by my sister, who it was gifted to. She's into archaeology. Appently still a good one.

Good books  Jan 14, 2008
Great price for a book that would cost more in any store. Very happy with my purchase
NAS Field Guide to Fossils  Jan 12, 2008
Another excellent book by the National Audubon Society. I was impressed with the photos of the various fossils, and was able to identify many that I have found around my cabin. This book will go to my grandson to enhance his growing collection of field guides.
Simply the best!  Sep 28, 2007
If you're looking for a complete field guide on fossils, you can't beat Audubon's. More than pictures and identification -- there's a ton of history and science too.

great little book  Dec 30, 2006
if you want to begin a hobby collecting fossils this is the book to have.
