Overview

In Dolphin Dreamtime, Jim Nollman, an internationally known pioneer in interspecies communication, vividly describes his experiences of forging new relationships with animals and the environment. Using music as a common language, this musician and ecologist has been able to "talk" with dolphins, seagulls, whales, buffalo, bears, and even a mosquito.

His astounding encounters with these creatures, who all have stories of their own, offer startling and controversial new evidence of the deep natural wisdom of all animals and the interconnectedness of all life.

From a "jam session" with howler monkeys in the Panamanian jungle to "dancing" with dolphins off the coast of Australia and gray whales off northern California, Nollman offers dramatic examples of our evolving relationship with the animal kingdom and draws on ecology, zoology, mythology, and shamanism to challenge us to rethink our ideas about animal consciousness.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Many wish two-way communication with animals were possible. Nollman's work describes his encounters with orcas, whales, and buffalo, encounters in which he used musical instruments to create a dialogue. The book opens with the Australian aborigine concept of ``dreaming,'' and in the final chapters reinforces that idea in a discussion of Nollman'sconcepts of intelligence, interspecies comradeship, and natural wisdom. The book is easily read and conveys the author's joy and sense of brotherhood in communicating with animals. However, some will question his belief in ``a deep intellect and communication network present throughout nature.'' Recommended for comprehensive collections. Michael D. Cramer, Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University Library, Blacksburg
