About this book

Walking along the beach and picking up seashells is a favorite pastime enjoyed by millions of people every year. Texas Seashells: A Field Guide covers three hundred of the better-known or more common seashells found on Texas coastlines, and anyone interested in identifying and collecting shells along Texas bays and Gulf coast beaches will find "Texas Seashells" an essential companion. With more than 600 detailed and data-rich color photographs, each species with at least two views, "Texas Seashells" is sure to make shell identification fun, quick, and easy.

Those new to collecting can get started with the introductory chapters on building your shell collection, local laws and regulations protecting this resource, seashell clubs, adopting a "Sheller's Creed," and basic seashell taxonomy. A glossary is also included for technical terms not defined in the text. Although Texas Seashells: A Field Guide is for seashells found along the Texas coast, it will also be useful in other regions of the Gulf of Mexico and western Atlantic Ocean.
