Behind the Dolphin Smile: One Man's Campaign to Protect the World's Dolphins.
Recently published by Earth Aware Editions, Behind the Dolphin Smile, written by Ric O'Barry with Keith Colbourn, is the true story of Ric's extraordinary journey from dolphin trainer to world-renowned advocate for dolphin freedom. In her foreword, Susan Casey calls the book a "page-turning narrative" that takes readers behind the scenes and "brings rich insight to our fraught relationship with the ocean's most formidable creatures."
