"Fascinated by the form and behavior of bottlenose dolphins, we've come to know much about them, but our understanding is still far from complete. Cara Gubbins devoted years of careful study to broaden that understanding for all of us who are stewards of these and other marine animals."—David J. St. Aubin, Director of Research and Veterinary Services, Mystic Aquarium and Institute for Exploration
"The Dolphins of Hilton Head is written for the millions of us who watch with fascination as bottlenose dolphins cruise along our beaches from New Jersey to California. . . This book is for anyone that enjoys looking out to sea, or understanding nature, but it should be the beach book of 2003."—Whales Alive!
"Black-and-white photographs enhance the adventurous and detailed 'reader friendly' text, making The Dolphins of Hilton Head a truly exciting account which is most especially recommended for marine wildlife students in general, and dolphin enthusiasts in particular."—Bookwatch
