Volcano: A Memoir of Hawai'i

by

Volcano: A Memoir of Hawai'i Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Part memoir, part Japanese American family chronicle, part luminous work of natural history, Volcano tells what happened when Hongo returned to his birthplace in Hawai'i, as a young man, to reclaim its dreamlike landscape and his own elusive past. A magnificant evocation of heritage and place.
