Books: Moon Tides: Book Reviews: Setsuko Matsunaga Nishi, Ph.D


“Moon Tides is a magnificent picture and storybook of the aging women divers of Jeju Island, off the southwestern coast of South Korea. It draws you into the lives of these stalwart women. It’s an inspiring story of aging women’s productivity and survival in an entrenched patriarchal society.”
