Transform yourself to the beach with this beautiful and useful guide to shell collecting. 

 

          Organized by species, this illustrated shell guide includes descriptions for forty shells and treasures tossed ashore by the waves -- including conch shells, keyhole limpets, moon snails, Scotch bonnets, sea beans, shark's teeth, urchins, and many more. The descriptions provide illuminating details on each creature's anatomy, adaptations, and ecosystem (plus other fun tidbits like the feasting habits of sea stars and the amazing medicinal contributions of horseshoe crabs). Each entry is paired with a lovely detailed illustration, making it easy to match your beach discoveries to the identifications in the book. 

      Facts about your finds are complemented by a resource section containing everything you need to know before setting out on your next shoreline adventure -- including the beachcomber's commendments, essential items for every collector's toolkit, and advice on cleaning shells. As charming as it is practical, The Beachcomber's Companion is the perfect resource for anyone who loves exploring the beach.
