      Almost all of us who have ever spent much time with whales or dolphins, either in captivity or in the wild, have stories of our own about the cetaceans' incredible telephatic and empathic abilities, but none of us have ever been better able to describe those experiences than Karin Kinsey does in Dancing on Water. This beautifully written narrative addresses a topic that most cetologists avoid like the plague (because it is soooo unscientific), and she describes it with the clarity of a photograph . . . A master storyteller, she has added a whole new chapter to an academic discussion that hasn't had this much to chew on since Joan McIntyre's Mind in the Waters was published almost 40 years ago. Like Mind in the Waters, which has never gone out of print, this book is a classic.

      Curt Kindaid, represented the Cabillow Marine Aquarium and the American Cetacean Society as the on-board naturalist and narrator for Catalina Cruises Whale Watch for 13 years, during which, he took a quarter of a million people whale watching. He also wrote the Whale Watch Guidelines for the Marine Mammal Protection Act.

Can dolphins act as teachers and guides?
What can we learn from our animal companions?

   This book is a series of personal stories, chronicling one woman's quest for understanding and self-discovery. In ways she could not have foreseen, dolphins, whales, and other animal companions come to participate in her journey. And the answers to some of life's more mysterious questions are revealed in surprising and unexpected places.

   Out of the blue, dolphins "visit" Karin in meditation, and then continue to appear in amazingly synchronistic ways in her life and in the lives of those around her. By way of example and through their interactions with us, dolphins can become interspecies "teachers" of humor and relationship, reminding us of our deep interconnectivity with all living things—and of our own role as stewards of a unique planet, with its miraculous variety of life-forms.

Paperback, $12.95, 30 grayscale photos/illustrations, 5.5" x 8.5", 168 pages.
