People love stones; their weight, texture, and shape feel wonderful in the hand. They remember exactly where a beach stone is from and when it was found.
So Margaret Carruthers instructs us in the geologic time scale and intricacies of a beach stone’s coming to be. The visual portraits of each stone and the artful groupings are tantamount to having a collection there in your lap.
