Publisher Description

David Brin's Uplift novels are among the most thrilling and extraordinary science fiction ever written.  Sundiver, Startide Rising, and The Uplift War--a New York Times bestseller--together make up one of the most beloved sagas of all time.  Brin's tales are set in a future universe in which no species can reach sentience without being "uplifted" by a patron race.  But the greatest mystery of all remains unsolved: who uplifted humankind?

The Terran exploration vessel Streaker has crashed in the uncharted water world of Kithrup, bearing one of the most important discoveries in galactic history.  Below, a handful of her human and dolphin crew battles armed rebellion and a hostile planet to safeguard her secret--the fate of the Progenitors, the fabled First Race who seeded wisdom throughout the stars.

A Science Fiction Classic

The middle piece of the Earthclan series, this is an ambitious work that takes on many themes such as intelligence, history, and moral integrity. A must for any SF fan.

A must-read for any science fiction novel-lover!

Backroad Rider ,

Startide Rising

As mentioned already, the ebook is poorly edited. The story is good and moves along nicely. Some interesting concepts and approaches. But beware of the sequels.
