New book explores the traditional knowledge of a coastal people

"Shells on a Desert Shore, a remarkable new book by SIL’s Cathy Moser Marlett, combines detailed studies of the landscape and wildlife with intimate portraits of the Seri culture.... While the language continues to be actively spoken within the community, changes in access to land and other factors have led to lifestyle changes, leaving traditional knowledge at risk of being lost."
