Geology and Palaentology of Eighteen Mile Creek by Amadeus W. Grabau. This photo facsimile reprint of the 1898 classic is a technical guidebook to the rocks and fossils of our region. The book can be purchased online through our Square marketplace or at Penn Dixie.
Amazon Reviewer Thomas Buckley writes:
“This book has excellent descriptions and images of all the fossil fauna you are likely to encounter at Eighteen Mile Creek, the Shore of Lake Erie, and the Penn-Dixie quarry…In addition to being excellent visually, it is also an easy read. Grabau writes in a more modern prose, not in the vernacular of the late 19th century. If you are collecting in these formations, having this book is a necessity. You will not be disappointed. Especially for the price.”
