Unfortunately the current API does not allow to read parts of a shape-file. I would recommend to generate the shape-file standard header. You can use the MemoryStream class to build a stream with the standard shape-file (header and shape) and then you can use public ShapeFileReader.Read(Stream) method to read shapes.
