Order Book Dolphins
by Chris Catton, Chris Caton
Hardcover - 160 pages (December 1995) - Price Range: UNDER $20

Information on dolphins from all over the world: from bottlenose dolphins that spend hours swimming with people and the rarely seen Amazon river dolphins which most closely resemble the earliest known form of the species, to the killer whale which actually belongs to the dolphin family. Dolphins are highly intelligent. They live in complex societies, work together to catch food, and defend themselves in groups. They communicate with one another and can understand human language. They have even been known to help fishermen, and to rescue people from shark attacks. Chris Catton draws on mythology and folklore, and numerous encounters with dolphins, to explore a unique relationship and the possibilities for this relationship in the future. Could it even be that one day dolphins and humans will be able to hold two-way conversations, as one kind of intelligence talks to another?
