    Just finished this massive book that covers the history of Hawaii. From the ancient tribes of idol worshipers that sailed by canoe to the Big Island and settled the island chain. Then the very ignorant missionaries arrive and their journey is a book by itself. From the birth of the islands out of the ocean to pre-statehood, it leaves the reader with a keen knowledge and a heart understanding of the people that settled the Islands. I have a new respect for the Chinese and Japanese and how different they are.

    Hawaii

    A very well written story of what the history of Hawaii may well have been. The use of characters is phenomenal covering several generations. Thoroughly enjoyed it and cannot believe I waited so long to read it. Am looking forward to reading other works by this gifted author

    Old but great saga that I just couldn't put down. Will keep this book in my library as I'll definitely be reading it again.

    Hawaii

    What a great book about the history of how Hawaii got to be the way it is.....from the early Polynesians who traveled from Bora Bora, to the American missionaries who came in the mid-1800's to bring Christianity to the Hawaiian people, how the powerful land owning families came to be in The Fort, the introduction of sugar cane and pineapple plantations and the oriental labor that came from China and Japan to work those plantations. The leper colony on Molokai, Pearl Harbor, the plague that ended with the burning of all of Chinatown in Honolulu. To read this and then picture these places in my mind as we walked those streets in Chinatown, drove Nuanuu Hwy, saw the pineapple fields and old sugar mills. Just a great book that makes me want to go back to Oahu even more and see all the museums and history that we missed on our last trip. We will get to Hawaii again.......
