This easy-to-read Florida seashells guide is a must-have book if you can find a copy. We borrowed ours from the local library. Suffice-to-say, it is a gem. My husband and I used it as a reference when we visited beaches on the west coast of Florida (Honeymoon Island, Stump Pass), the Panhandle (St. George) and the northeast coast (Little Talbot and Anastasia State Park). We started out with very little knowledge but by the time we finished hiking at our fifth beach, we had become old hats.
