This edition of Volcanoes was published as a ‘pocket’-sized Penguin book, and I have fond memories of reading it as a volcano-obsessed teenager. Peter wrote this as a book to be read, rather than as a textbook, and it.

In their designs ama divers were often seen at work diving in the sea, looking for pearls, seaweed, shellfish, lobsters, octopus, and oysters that sometimes contain a pearl, but in some cases they were the subject of fantasy designs as in the famous prints of Hokusai and Utamaro.

The young women, some just girls, who also harvested seaweed and turban shells in addition to the more prosperous pearl-bearing abalone, would dive in often freezing waters, for 2 minutes at a time and come up to breathe for just barely a few seconds.

They would do this up to 60 times in a single diving session, up to three times a day.One of the lesser-known but fascinating parts of Japanese culture is that of the Ama pearl divers.
