The Sponge Divers
Charmian Clift and George Johnston
First edition

For thousands of years, the Greek island Kalymnos was famous for its sponge divers. When a cheaper synthetic sponge was invented a 3,000 year-old way of life was coming to an end. This book is the compelling story of people facing that change; one small port in one small island in a remote sea.
