Gave this book along with, "Smithsonian Handbooks: Shells" as a gift to two elementary aged girls (along with some old found shells). Since then they have been very busy matching up the shells with the photos in the book. This gift of shells which we had for years and these great books inspired them a great deal according to their Mother. What was initially a simple gift turned into a happy family time learning experience initiated by their own curiosity.

Tucker Abbott is the definitive American authority on mollusks and sea shells. I use this as a guide for my marine biology student field trips. It may be old but still works great.

I gave this to my resident shell collector who loves it! The drawings are very realistic and detailed, which will make it much easier to identify shells. I like the compact size which will be great for the beach. It is a more advanced Golden Field Guide- something a bit more adult like in scope, but very usable for a child too. This was a great investment and I expect we will enjoy it for years to come.

Nice book like all the Golden Field Guides. Very informative and not too hard to follow. I really like how it explains the different parts of the shell and the information about the inhabitants of each shell. Very nice illustrations.

Very interesting book. It helped us identify some shells we found in the Caribbean. Beautiful pics, but after a while, it becomes monotonous in information.

This is my first seashell book about north america, I have to say author written this with his heart. Really thoughtful for amateurs,from the way that how to identify the seashell, he gave many good suggestions.

The pictures are all drawings by hand,I like the way he illustrate all the features.

A good book for beginners, a good book for your child.

Good basic reference.

This is a great guide for shells of the North American coasts! A lot of descriptions, full with pictures everywhere. The pictures are not photos, but are wonderfully ilustrated by full color drawings, perfect and beautiful. "How to Use This Book" is a very helpful section, and then all there is to know about molusks is explained, topic by topic. Following, is an extensive and descriptive list of the different shells to be found in North American Coast, ordered in groups. You will find the explanation of each group, as an introduction to each.

This book is a must-have!
