Description

Pebble hunting is a pleasant and health-giving hobby, whether pursued on a beach, the lake-side, or the river-bank, and all but those who are nearing the last stages of decrepitude can enjoy it. 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.
