I've been looking for a good fossil book about the fossils of CA, specifically northern CA. I'm mainly interested in shark's teeth, but will collect pretty much any type of fossil. If you know of any such books and can suggest some to me I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

There really aren't any except for that booklet on sharks from Scotts Valley I told you about in another thread and an out-of-print book on the fossil of the Santa Cruz area. There is that book on dinosaurs of California, and of course, some technical papers on various fossils.

Thaks for the reply. I will make it a point of picking up that booklet next time I'm down near Santa Cruz. I've been looking at that book on the Dinosaurs of CA. I might pick up a copy if I can find a good price for it.
