'The White Divers of Broome: the true story of a fatal experiment' by John Bailey

Publisher:  Pan MacMillan Australia

Published: 2001


  • History
  • Cultural (Australia)



"An extraordinarily captivating and compelling story of the early days of Broome, a remote outpost of Australia in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Broome made its fame and fortune as a pearl fishing town and at the time before the first world war, it was booming. This book superbly brings to life the era, the people and the risky culture of Broome and the pearlers. It is so beautifully written that it is a page-turner, as fascinating as any work of fiction. Despite the many unpleasant aspects of the story, the author manages to inform the reader without repelling them. An enviable talent considering how much racism and careless inhumanity were embedded in the culture." - Deborah Ideiosepius
