Quick Overview:

Recreates the romantic and ancient ways of the pearl diver, pearl merchant, ship builder and seafarer that have been all but lost to the modern world.


Codrai was privileged to have been able to see, record and photograph much of the marine activity at a time when the Gulf was home to the largest surviving merchant sailing fleet in the world. This book is a record of the last years of an old way of life, and a time when the sheikhdoms were on the threshold of radical change – change that led to the demise of the distinctive lateen sails, and to a new form of trade that would have far-reaching consequences: the oil trade.
