"In turns lyrical, passionate, direct, and informative, Rachel Smolker's "To Touch a Wild Dolphin" provides at once a great adventure story and an astonishing account of scientific exploration. It is a book that is sure to earn its rightful place alongside a handful of other astonishing accounts of breakthrough into our understanding of intelligent nonhumans. It is a book that deserves comparison with Jane Goodall's great classic "In the Shadow of Man." -Dale Peterson, author of "Chimpanzee Travels."

"Rachel Smolker will be welcomed by readers to the growing ranks of women who not only pursue science with rigor but write well enough to convey the excitement and interest of their work."-Sue Hubbell, author of "Waiting for Aphrodite" and "A Book of Bees" --from the back cover.
