Reviews - What do customers think about National Audubon Society Pocket Guide to Familiar Seashells?

Name that Shell!  Jun 30, 2000
Perfect photos -- plus ample description with range and habitat -- for identification of the rare gorgeous specimen, the common little beauties that practically jump into my basket, and previous collections as well. Adding to this tiny guide's usefulness are basic information on mollusks, shell groupings and parts, hints on collecting, a glossary, and an index. It is my newest travel companion, perfect for my purposes, compact and light enough to take everywhere (along with my rock, bird, and tree guides!).
