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.

    MaryJane Butters’ go-to guide for putting glamour into camping."Glamping, or glamour camping, one of the MaryJane's pet concepts, is about the juxtaposition of rugged and really pretty, grit and glam, diesel and absolutely darling."-The New York Times.Glamping-unleashing your inner wild while wearing a pair of fishing-lure earrings-is for every woman (or man!) who ever had a get-away-from-it-all fantasy (with a few frilly embellishments thrown in). Learn about the never-fail campfire, cooking with cast iron, how to change a flat, and much, much more. Follow the growing Glamping movement at maryjanesfarm.org and nationalglampingweekend.com.Like the infamous Calamity Jane, who said, “I figure if a girl wants to be a legend, she should go ahead and be one,” MaryJane Butters coined the term glamping years ago when she founded her unusual Idaho canvas wall-tent bed & breakfast, which was featured in The New York Times Magazine and Travel & Leisure as “the place to be.” Legend status achieved, MaryJane lives in Moscow, Idaho, where she runs her many businesses, which include a successful organic farm, product lines, a bed & breakfast, and MaryJanesFarm magazine. This is her fourth book.
