In which teenage Edward S. Morse of Salem, Massachusetts, begins a life-long love affair with shells, leaves home for Boston, studies with Louis Agassiz at the Museum of Comparative Zoology in Cambridge, and becomes the world's leading authority on brachiopods (by proving conclusively that these tiny creatures are not mollusks, but worms), and how these same brachiopods lead him, at the age of thirty-nine, to Japan.
