Whether you’re digging for the first                 time or are an experienced rockhound or                 “prospector,” with a simple rock hammer and a                 little luck, you too can strike it rich ... or at the very                 least, have fun trying.  
This guide offers you easy-to-use information on the ins and outs of “fee dig”                 mining, complete with locations, costs, tips on technique,                 entertaining legends and important information on everything                 from safety kits to the location of the nearest restrooms.

    Through the author’s travels in Europe and the United States, Try to Get Lost explores the quest for place that compels and defines us: the things we carry, how politics infuse geography, media’s depictions of an idea of home, the ancient and modern reverberations of the word “hotel,” and the ceaseless discovery generated by encounters with self and others on familiar and foreign ground. Frank posits that in fact time itself may be our ultimate, inhabited place—the “vastest real estate we know,” with a “stunningly short” lease.
