Thank you-all for your replies to my question, including
a ?reference list for tektites?. They have been most helpful.

I lucked out on this one as the library, where I work
has this book in its collections. Needless to say, I have
checked it out and looking through all the data,
information, and ideas it contains.

Now I just need to figure if the alleged Louisiana
tektites are fact or fiction. At this time, I suspect
the latter until someone finds some more.

Best Regards,
