Christina Dodwell follows in the great tradition of Victorian women explorers. She has braved the jungles of New Guinea, paddled a canoe down the Congo, and roamed China in the footsteps of her grandmother. Now she is searching for one of the world's rarest and most deeply hidden treasures of the sea, the black pearls that come only from the black-lipped oysters of remote South Sea lagoons.
