KIRKUS REVIEW

Social, rather than factual, history in anecdotes, stories, sketches of Hawaii's rulers, missionaries, merchants- authentic tales, convivially retold. The early settlers, the sailors and whalers, the gold rush, the coming of trade, the famous tourists, -- essence of life reflected in a good humored, harlequin textured record by way of colorful tidbits and incidental information. Supplementary reading to orthodox guides.
