KIRKUS REVIEW

Kamehameha The Great Of Hawaii is presented in a spirited and sympathetic biography which parallels his career with the colorful history of the individual islands and the eventual uniting of them into a tropical kingdom. It is filled with legend and lore, customs and stories, and offers as complete a picture of the first ruler as is possible from tales handed down from family to family and available contemporary records. An interesting re-creation of little known Pacific history and an important personage, this should appeal to all who know the Islands and those for whom Hawaii has a special appeal.
