This is Japan, March 2011. Disaster images traversed the global networks. A shocked world looked on. The horror and uncertainty of the moment is captured in 'Tides of March' as seen through the eyes of a teacher of English experiencing the historical tragedy. The book takes the reader on a journey through a city of swaying skyscrapers, the desolate tsunami torn districts, idyllic lands carpeted with radiation, and the story of an incredible dying survivor.
