Chapters: 1 What are fossils, 2 Brief Tour of Dorsets Geologoy, 3 Fossils: clues to the past 4 Dorset Fossils, 5 Responsible and Safe Collecting 6 Mary Anning 7 The West Dorset Coast 8 Portland, 9 Weymouth Osmington, Kingstead, 10 Purbeck Coast 11 Studland to Hampshire 12 "The last chapter". Easy to read and generally useful (handy A5 size) but not the depth I was hoping for (but perhaps by expectations too high for this low cost book).

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book, 4 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Discover Dorset Fossils (Paperback)
Bought 3 books before going to Lyme Regis, this one, The Official Guide to the Jurassic Coast: Dorset and East Devon's World (waste of money), and British Fossils (Shire Library) which was not good. This was the best of the three by far ....

Could've done with more location material to help the newer fossil hunter, but a solid enough introduction.
