Journey of the Pink Dolphins: An Amazon Quest by Sy Montgomery

In Journey Of The Pink Dolphins, nature writer Sy Montgomery begins a quest through the world's great rain forest on a search for the enigmatic and little-studied pink dolphin, the most ancient species of toothed whale. Local river people say the pink dolphins are magical. In the guise of human desire, they can claim your soul and take you to the Encante, an enchanted world beneath the river.

To track these elusive animals, Montgomery took four trips into the heart of the Amazon, where shamans commune with the Mother of the Vine and pink dolphins perform their river water ballet. Mark Plotkin, author of Tales Of A Shaman's Apprentice, says "Here is Montgomery at her best, beckoning us to follow her in search of one of our planet's most mysterious creatures. . . . No one is better at making you fall in love with nature."

About The Author: Sy Montgomery, who writes a nature column for The Boston Globe, is a commentator for National Public Radio's "Living on Earth" and is the author of four heralded books, Spell Of The Tiger, Walking With The Great Apes, Nature's Everyday Mysteries, and Seasons Of The Wild.

About the Author

Researching articles, films, and her twenty-one books for adults and children, bestselling author Sy Montgomery has been chased by an angry silverback gorilla in Rwanda, hunted by a tiger in India, and swum with piranhas, electric eels, and pink dolphins in the Amazon. Her work has taken her from the cloud forest of Papua New Guinea (for a book on tree kangaroos) to the Altai Mountains of the Gobi (for another on snow leopards.) Her books for adults include The Soul of an Octopus (a National Book Award finalist), The Good Good Pig, Birdology, Spell of the Tiger, Journey of the Pink Dolphins, and Walking with the Great Apes. She lives in New Hampshire with her husband, the writer Howard Mansfield, their border collie, Thurber, and their flock of free-range laying hens.
