"(Gibbons) shows how to identify and render palatable some forms not commonly considered food items in this country, such as periwinkles, chitons, dog whelks, goose barnacles, and wild seaside plants, in addition to, of course, the more common shellfish. Those who share Gibbons own love for the seashore will be anxious to start nibbling away after reading this.
