Summary
A history of the pearling industry in the northwest of Western Australia, 1886-1942. It follows the journey of two generations of master pearlers. It takes a young pearler from Beagle Bay to Gallipoli, to the war in the Sinai and to the trenches of Belgium and France. It includes richly illustrated chapters on the life of pioneer women, cyclones, racial unrest and a riot, the Royal Flying Doctor Service, and the economics of pearling over this period
