about

A unique blend of natural history and crime drama, Shell Games by Craig Welch is a riveting tale of rogues, scoundrels, and the hunt for nature’s bounty in the tradition of The Orchid Thief. A stranger-than-fiction true story centered around a larger-than-life character who pursued a larger-than-life clam—the Geoduck—and then led wildlife police on a two-year-long chase, Shell Games is enthralling and remarkable from page one on.<_o3a_p>

Craig Welch is the environmental writer for theSeattle Times, a fellow at Harvard University's Nieman Foundation for Journalism, and a two-time winner of the Society of Environmental Journalists' top prize for beat reporting.
