Adventures with Fossils
Indiana Geological Survey
Many laymen write to the Indiana Geological Survey and ask: “Please send me books and maps on fossils and where they can be found.” Some write on tablet paper in the labored fifth-grade hand of a school child; others write on linen in the neatly feminine and classic lines that are surely those of a school teacher; still others type on expensive letterheads that show the nature of their professions. This circular is written for all of them but especially for those of school age. It is for school teachers, scoutmasters, parents, and other counselors of children. It is a beginner’s guide to fossils, most useful to collectors in Indiana. It is for the curious everywhere who do not write to me, but who seek a hobby, avocation, or beginning knowledge to a profession. It is for all who are interested and seek, through fossils, one means to the Truth.
