Summary: From Introduction by the Author: "This book is not a conventional history... It does not attempt to cover all the highlights of Hawaii's past... rather there are a selected series of episodes that have been written about in depth. A series of episodes forms a chapter and represents Hawaii during a certain era. Episodes sometimes revolve around a certain event--for example, the annexation of Hawaii by Great Britain in the 1840s--or around an individual, such as Jack London in the early 1900s. This selective technique allows a deeper, more human look into Hawaii's past than is possible with a general history... This book also includes historical information not previously available to the general reading public. New information appears to an increasing degree as the book progresses. The amount of new information available about the late 19th century is substantial..."

"A colorful story that reaches from the arrival of the first Polynesian voyagers to the achievement of statehood in 1959."
