Take home the warmth, spirit and adventure of Kauai with stories told by the island's people.
Kauai comes alive in this joy-filled collection of
50 inspiring, humorous and touching stories
describing life on the Garden Island.
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.
Dance hula with women who keep this cultural tradition alive.
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.
Smile at humorous tales of acceptance and affection for
the island’s wild chicken population.
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.
Catch the fun, spirit and adventure of Kauai
through the words of the island's people!
With everlasting gratitude to artist Fanny Bilodeau for her
lovely painting that is the beautiful cover of "Kauai Stories."
Her original image, titled "Cottage #10," was painted at
Waimea Plantation Cottages on Kauai's west side.
Mahalo (thank you), Fanny!
