Publisher's Weekly Review

First published in 1975 by Harper & Row, this updated and expanded edition of Lads Before the Wind: Diary of a Dolphin Trainer relates ethologist Karen Pryor's vivid and engaging adventures with dolphins from the early '60s to the present day. Considered a pioneer in dolphin behavioral and communication training, Pryor (Nursing Your Baby; Don't Shoot the Dog!) takes the reader behind the scenes of her scientific research and to Brazil, where she meets fishermen who work symbiotically with dolphins to drive fish to their nets. B&w photos throughout. (Feb.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


Library Journal Review

Pryor, a recognized expert in dolphin training, has developed many of the animal-friendly methods that have become standards. In this enlarged edition of her 1975 original, she describes her early days in the field and how that evolved into her later research in animal communication. (c) Copyright 2010.
