Synopses & Reviews
Sydney Iaukea's impeccably researched account of the origins and subsequent development of North Beach West Maui is more that just a scholarly monograph. It is a story that chronicles both the Hawaiian history of the ?aina as well as the waves of grass roots movements that sought to preserve precious spaces for future public use. Iaukea's personal connection to and love for this land is interwoven with the community's personalities and the decisions of Maui's county government. Keka?a is a memoir of one place and a guide map for those still trying to save other spaces in Hawai?i.
