In Roger J Kuhns’ novel Dolphin Mimicry, the forces of mankind and nature intersect through the intertwined journeys of self-realization and enlightenment between a man and a dolphin. This story follows the adventures of a diver, Jonas, working on an ocean rig off the coast of Namibia in the South Atlantic. He befriends a dolphin, Peek, and their shared adventure deepens through the discovery of each other’s worlds as they interact with whales, sharks, intense storms, and humans. The story embraces the importance of respecting and protecting nature, and leads to a conclusion that will warm your heart.
The author wrote the story while at sea exploring for diamonds, where he could see all the semi rigs drilling for oil on the continental shelf. During this time, he was lucky enough to watch dolphins, whales, sharks, and humans interacting in many ways. It began as a bedtime tale for the author’s children, Matthew and Madeleine, following his experiences at sea, but morphed into a tale for all ages.
“I cracked the cover and found myself in the middle of an Ocean, headed for a very large Adventure! I was so caught up in that huge high seas storm, my heart was actually racing. Surely Jonas would survive! In the early hours of this morning, I finished your exciting-wonderfully-fantastically-real novel, about Jonas & Peek. What a bedtime story! To put it mildly, I loved it.”

“This book took me on a journey to the Namibia Coast and the wonders of the lives of marine creatures . . . what a joy to be swimming fast, diving and leaping above the water on equatorial sunsets. I really wish we had a Jonas dolphin research fund at the local aquarium.”
