From Susan Casey, the New York Times bestselling writer of The Wave and The Devil’s Teeth, a wide ranging trip during the outstanding international of dolphins
Since the sunrise of recorded background, people have felt a kinship with the graceful and gorgeous dolphin, an animal whose playfulness, sociability, and intelligence appear like an aquatic reflect of mankind.
