The Pearl Seekers
Founded on fact and authentic research, this book sets out the whole drama of the pearling trade. Packed with action and incident, it is full of cut throats, ne’er-do-wells, rogues and murderers. It is a story of men pitting their cunning against each other and their strength against the sea and its perils.
