HAWAII by Alma E. Thoene


Email this review


The sun almost always shines in this word-and-picture portrait of Hawaii, its ""warm"" and ""tolerant"" people, its history and government, plant and animal life, agriculture and industry, transportation and communication, religion, education and culture (from the chapter headings of the same names). Geared to school assignments, it provides enough information for a respectable report in an easily intelligible form. Ignoring current problems, it is also mercifully free of hula-baloo--tourism is an industry, not an overlay. This supersedes the Epstein First Book, is more succinct than Bauer's Hawaii, the Aloha State, with less historical and more general coverage.
