Take home the fun, spirit and adventure of Hawaii through the voices of Kauai’s people!
Hawaii comes alive in this joy-filled collection of 50
inspiring, humorous and touching stories that
illustrate life in the happiest state in America.
Feel the ocean spray as residents share their love of surfing,
canoe paddling and strolling along secluded sun-warmed beaches,
often making the only footsteps in the sand.
Learn hula from women who keep the traditional native dance alive.
Laugh with people as they recall innocent childhoods
growing up island-style in multi-cultural sugar plantation “camps,”
going barefoot until high school and making toys of whatever
was on hand,like Frisbees from car-flattened, sun-dried toads.
Chuckle at humorous tales of acceptance and affection for
the island’s wild chicken population.
Journey thousands of miles across oceans in a voyaging canoe with sailors who navigate only by the stars, the moon, the sun and waves
as their ancestors did when
they discovered Hawaii more than 1,500 years ago.
Catch the fun, spirit and adventure of Hawaii
through the voices of Kauai’s people!
