Hawaii on My Mind (America on My Mind) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

<i>Hawai'i on My Mind</i> celebrates all that is special about the Aloha State--its tropical landscape, its sun-kissed cities, its unique wildlife, and its diverse peoples. Featured in the pages of this book are more than 170 stunning full-color images by such talented photographers as Ann Cecil, Greg Vaughn, Philip Rosenberg, and James Randklev. Augmenting the photos are the eloquent observations of writers who have known and loved the islands, including Mark Twain, Robert Louis Stevenson, James Michener, and Jack London. Together the words and pictures comprise a memorable journey through a place that Twain so aptly described as 'the peacefulest, restfulest, sunniest, balmiest, dreamiest haven of refuge...the surface of the earth can offer.'
