"Sario lives with his clan on a remote Torres Strait island, which he never wants to leave--but the winds of change are stirring. The year is 1898 and the pearl-shell trade is at its height. When his father is coerced to join a white trader on his pearling lugger, thirteen-year-old Sario must go to work as a swimming diver to support the family. He wants to dive in a breathing helmet and walk the sea floor, but Hiroshi, another young pump-diver, is determined to stand in his way"--Back cover.
