This handsomely-illustrated introduction to the fascinating world of the mollusk opens the door to the wonders of shells and the living creatures within them. An amazing rich group for study, the gastropods include slitshells, limpets, turbans, nerites, cowries, helmets, tritons, wendletraps, cone shells, murexes, and many others. No less fascinating are the bivalves such as scallops, oysters, and clams, and the shelled cephalopod known as the nautilus. Here, depicted in 80 full-color photographs, are shells with a stunning range of colors, markings, and textures that are sure to appeal to naturalists and collectors alike.

This book is the product of a long process of poetic evolution. The oldest poem was written more than a quarter century ago; the most recent, mere weeks ago. The book is divided into six sections. Part 1, entitled The Poet, contains the most personal and introspective poems of the collection. Part 2, The Caribbean Homeland, addresses experiences and themes derived from Trinidad, the land of my birth. Part 3, the most extensive, is entitled The North American Experience, and the poems are outgrowths of my experiences in the US which span a period of twenty-eight years. Part four is entitled The Human Condition. The title, I believe, is self-explanatory. Part five, entitled On A Lighter Note, contains half a dozen poems which rely for their effect on humor and refuse to take themselves too seriously. Part six contains ten Haiku, none of which deals with Caribbean themes, unlike the three I include in part two.

Using original Victorian prints, by collectable artist George Sowerby, marine biologist and author Paul Chambers has produced the first comprehensive guide to shells for over a century. The original prints are intricately detailed (much better than photographs which lack the exact detail of these drawings) and are a selling point in themselves but will be complemented by informative but accessible text, including families and to show what's edible, dangerous or belongs to mollusk families and in what part of the country they can be discovered. A delightful study by the leading expert and a must for anyone interested in learning more about shells - or who just enjoys beach combing with the family.
