Books: Moon Tides: Book Reviews: Seo Kang-soo


Moon Tides is a truly welcome book in the way it informs the world about the haenyeo--a unique and valuable cultural legacy of Korea, but one that is on the wane. Brenda Paik Sunoo's meticulous eye and prose delve deep to provide a vivid picture of the haenyeo's lives, realizing an accomplishment as yet unachieved by anyone else. I hope that this book will allow many to share in this accomplishment and the profound emotions encountered therein."
