 해녀 할머니의 하루

This book is about Jeju women divers. Those divers are called Haenyeo in the local language. And their lives and diving skills are quite fascinating. Our book is the first in the series about one such diver - an elderly lady who dives in style. Haenyeorina - an underwater ballerina and a wonderful Grandma.
