Boat Builders of the Coromandel: A Craft and its Makers tells the story of a group of craftsmen who build large wooden cargo boats with their bare hands and simple tools. Stunning on-site photographs bring alive the doing of an unusual craft that requires physical strength as well as dexterity, learnt skills as well as improvisation. A compact narrative, interspersed with the builders’ views on their work, guides the reader through a startling history of making.
