Synopses & Reviews
This monograph by Peter C. Howorth tells the story of the American abalones. Many people marvel at the iridescent swirls gracing the interior of an abalone shell; others exclaim over their first bite of an abalone steak. Seldom do people realize what causes the lovely colors of the shell, or that this animal is really a huge, flattened snail. Identification keys, information on cleaning and preparing, plus plenty of recipes.
