Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"[A] mammoth epic of the islands, [a] vast panorama, wonderful."

THE BALTIMORE SUN

America's preeminent storyteller, James Michener, introduced an entire generation of readers to a lush, exotic world in the Pacific with this classic novel. But it is also a novel about people, people of strength and character; the Polynesians; the fragile missionaries; the Chinese, Japanese, and Filipinos who intermarried into a beautiful race called Hawaiians. Here is the story of their relationships, toils, and successes, their strong aristocratic kings and queens and struggling farmers, all of it enchanting and very real in this almost mythical place.

Synopsis:

Hawaii is not only a truly great story but a notable literary achievement. It is a work of fiction, yet so true to the spirit and the history of the islands that it can properly be called the first major chronicle of the land and its people- a monumental tribute that will stand indefinitely.
