Maybe that plain old rock has gleaming jewels inside.
Maybe Africa and South America used to be best friends.
Maybe a clam that died 300 million years ago is in your backyard.
What secrets is Earth hiding? These twenty-two poems leave no stone unturned in exploring the world’s natural wonders.
Crack this book open and watch geology sparkle.
