The first intimate account of dolphin life in the wild.
Dolphins are seen up close, in their natural environment and we get a picture of their individual identities.
Smolker comes to know the history, relationships and identities of individual dolphins and assesses how like us they really are: intelligent, social and emotionally complex.
Her experiences can be fascinating, inspiring and at times heartbreaking but always they help to unravel the mysteries that surround dolphins.
This is a personal book, both at the level of the scientist and in its descriptions of dolphins, which enhances our understanding of these much-loved animals.
