Dolphins Dance begins when a Honolulu man who has lived with a terminal illness for many years determines that it is time to gracefully exit this world. After a final farewell, his ashes are spread in the ocean beyond Makapuu Point. His spirit is reborn as a Pacific Bottlenose Dolphin along the coast of California. We follow the life of this dolphin as he is drawn back to the Hawaiian Islands. The story blends scientific fact about dolphin behavior with fantasy. Issues that affect their existence are explored by looking at the world through the eyes of a dolphin.The dolphin, Strong Nose, rescues a college student, Jackson, after she has a surfing accident. Their lives are irrevocably altered by the experience. Strong Nose begins a quest to understand and communicate with humans. Jackie joins a marine mammal rescue team that saves a female dolphin from a failing marine park and releases it into the wild. The rescued dolphin and Strong Nose meet and form a bond. Together, they travel back to the Hawaiian Islands. Readers who love the ocean and are fascinated by the mammals of the sea will enjoy this novel. The author hopes that by sharing this story more people will be moved to protect and preserve our ocean.This is the second edition of Dolphins Dance. The story is the same, but the voice and the writing have been greatly improved. The words are more solidly crafted, the characters are more developed, and the message, I believe, is stronger. This second edition is the only version of the story that is authorized by me. The first edition, Dolphins' Dance (note the apostrophe), was published under contract with a vanity press publisher. My disappointment with their pricing and services is well documented. It took nearly four years before they would sell the rights of my book back to me. Please don't purchase any of the original books. I'm very happy that I am able to bring this revised version to you at a reasonable price. I hope you enjoy it.
