Humans have been fascinated by dolphins and porpoises for thousands of years. Drawn by their intelligence and good nature, the citizens of ancient civilizations honored dolphins as gods. Stories abound of their strength and dexterity in the water and of their affectionate and playful relationships with people.

But what is the truth about these appealing creatures? Author and marine ecologist Erich Hoyt, who has spent 25 years working with dolphins and whales around the world, brings us up to date on the latest dolphin research, answering and asking questions about the future of their threatened habitat, their social lives, their innovative feeding behaviors and their ability to learn from and communicate with humans. Beautifully illustrated with color drawings and photographs throughout, Riding with the Dolphins is a captivating guide to these mammals of the sea.
