Journey of the Pink Dolphins: An Amazon Quest
Why this book?
Journey of the Pink Dolphins was the first of Sy Montgomery’s many wonderful books that I read. I was captivated by Montgomery’s encounters with the mysterious pink river dolphins and other Amazonian creatures. As she wove together the history of the Amazon with the mythology of the land and its animals and people, I loved how her adventure unfolded. I realized that this was the kind of nature writer I wanted to be. Sy Montgomery’s narrative style helped me find my own nature writing voice.
