HERE'S HAWAII by Bob Krauss


Email this review


A catch-all of notes and stories about our 50th state comes from the columnist of the Advertiser in Honolulu and provides an easy run through on its type of life. From the dangers of falling coconuts, the kinds of clothing worn, the Hawaiianization of foreign ideas, some of its history, music, to the variety of its islands, and the 1959 volcanic eruption, this presents a friendly display of Hawaii's natural attractions and its man-made attributes in casual fashion. There are pieces on visiting celebrities, pitfalls for tourists (sunburn the most common), picture-taking, sightseeing, local residents, food, the beaches, the coming of statehood, daily living, etc., and the whole results in an informal profile which should be a chatty introduction for a first visitor. The publisher is planning West Coast and Honolulu promotion and tie-ins with air lines and travel agencies.
