From Publishers Weekly
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.

From Library Journal
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.

I have spent a portion of my life trying to retrace my dad's steps to learn who he was. I have even gone sport fishing on the Imua long after my father had passed away, and the Imua was refitted for sport fishing. I have met many skippers and captains on many boats in Hawaii who seemed to have known my father and had told tall stories of my father and the sea. My foster father who was also a bottom fisherman called my father the great fisherman. I guess Georges Gilbert had an uncanny feel for the ocean and the animals that the ocean possessed.
Thank you Karen for writing this book
