Life on the tropical island of Kauai comes alive in this collection of 50 personal stories told by the island’s people.

Topics include dancing hula; making salt the Hawaiian way; growing up island-style in sugar plantation camps; and sailing thousands of miles across oceans in a voyaging canoe navigated only by the stars, moon, sun and waves as ancient Polynesians did 1,500 years ago.

Special section featuring four of the islands World War II veterans.


The lively second volume of 50 more personal stories told by Kauai’s people.

Explore the ocean with those who live to surf; swim dangerous coastlines; and hunt for tasty, tiny opihi that live on the underside of ocean rocks.

Dance hula with the teenage daughters of a hula instructor, girls who feel they were born to perpetuate the dance of their ancestors.

Other topics include ghost stories, lei-making and romance on The Garden Island.

Harry T. Yamanaka’s charming anecdotes of growing up one of 13 children on Kauai in the 1930s and 1940s.

Join him as he makes his own fishing canoe with comical results; walks along a mile-long road at night with the ghost of Felix; and learns how to use the first telephone ever installed in the tiny sugar plantation camp where he spent his childhood.

Feel Harry's growing connection with his parents, who immigrated to Kauai from Japan in the early 1900s.
