The story deals with pearl fishing on the persion gulf. Once the writer went to the pearl fishing boat. He noticed two type of menon the pearl fishing boat. they were the thin and fat men. The thin men were the divers. They ate very little. They had to diver under water the 160 time daily. The fat man werer the ropepullers. They ate a great deal. They needed to develop the great strenght of muscles to pull the rope quickly. The divers woke was very hard. They put their foot in an iron stirrup and go down in the water. When they collect the pearl the ropepullers pull the rope quickly. the divers come back on the surface. So we can say that the work of pearl fishing is very difficult.
