The island of Maui earned ancient glory through wise and courageous chiefs such as Pi'ilani, who ruled over what was considered a model kingdom... Maui's people created its colorful story, such as the ruthless chief Kahekili, the powerful ruling queen Ka'ahumanu and Hawaii's longest reigning monarch, Kamehameha III, who made Lahaina the capital of his kingdom..."

"...Clears a window into the past by providing details of island traditions such a s surfing, hula, polo, rodeo, horseracing, and the Maui County Fair. Narratives of World War II, the post-war social and political transformation, and the recent flowering of Hawaiian culture brings the reader up to date. Carefully researched, this book is a treasured reference of Maui's colorful history for residents and visitors alike. Most of all, it is a good read and a visual treat!"
