Historical info presented throughout. "This book is about a modern Robinson Crusoe who explores an island in the Pacific Ocean in order to learn how to survive on island earth. To discover the island way of survival he sets out from Honolulu with four companions to walk and sail an outrigger canoe 300 miles around the island of Hawaii on the path of the ancients. His unusual adventure takes him over lava deserts, into uninhabited jungle valleys, upon the somber spot where Capt. James Cook was slain, and to sea for a close call with shipwreck. With warmth and candor he describes future shock among ancient Polynesians, the environmental impact of going to the bathroom in old Hawaii, and the global village he found in a South Sea grocery store...."
