Pebble hunting is a pleasant and health-giving hobby, whether pursued on a beach, the lake-side, or the river-bank.

First published in 1973, and recently redisovered, this is a spirited guide to the simple pleasure of pebble spotting. Ellis is a charming, knowledgeable, and witty guide to everything you didn't know you wanted to know about pebbles.He ruminates on what a pebble actually is, before showing us how they are formed, advising on the best pebble-spotting grounds in the UK, helping to identify individual stones, and giving tips on the necessary kit.

This edition features fresh illustrations and a new introduction by Robert MacFarlane. Nature-lovers won't want to leave home without a copy firmly tucked into their coat pocket.
