Those of you already familiar with the book by the Witherington's, "Florida's Seashells - A Beachcomber's Guide", will need no further introduction to this book. Both of these books offer more information about more of the shells than other of the small guide books that you usually see. In this case, there are 213 species along with 233 very good full-color photographs of the shells along with tips for their identification and their distribution maps. The book is index with their common names and with their scientific classification names and both are found in the text. While the shells included from the southern part of the range overlap with the same shells found in Florida, there are enough differences to make the modest cost of this book well worth having.
