    One thought on “Kauai”

    1. Picked this up to read while wandering around the backroads of Kauai. Who knew that the island was never conquered? That wai'ale'ale receives 36 feet of rain a YEAR?

    2. Capt. James Cook stood on his ship gazing at the coastline of Kauai and the Hawaiian village of Waimea in 1778. The oldest and northernmost of the Hawaiian Islands, Kauai did not see missionaries until 1820. From the moment Cook put Kauai on the map, it has gathered admirers from all over the world who come to experience its exquisite beauty and wonder. A very interesting book detailing the history of Kuaui.

    3. Wonderful collection of old photographs of early life on Kauai. This book is an excellent example of "a picture is worth a thousand words"

    4. Would suggest this book to anyone interested in some light history on Kauai. Enjoyed how the author used photos to support his information.
