With its azure skies, blue seas, lush tropical foliage, and volcanic formations, the Hawaiian islands truly are a visual celebration--and this volume, featuring awe-inspiring photos by Elan Penn, honors its magnificence. But there's more to America's 50th state than amazing landscapes: Award-winning author Ellie Crowe is a superb tour guide to the individual islands, with their state parks, museums of native art, temples, ranches, farms, and gardens. Of course, there's a visit to the
USS Arizona Memorial; an introduction to the fierce chiefs and feather gods, monarchs and missionaries who influenced the culture; a journey to the Moloka'i sea cliffs; a trip to Volcanoes National Park; and a presentation of contemporary, sophisticated Hawaii. A foreword by leading Hawaiian scholar Rubellite Kawena Kinney Johnson begins the journey.
