Travel Book of the Week: “Hawaii” by James A. Michener

HawaiiI recently had lunch with a good friend who represents some hotels in Hawaii and in her purse was a book: “Hawaii” by James A. Michener. I inquired about it and she said it’s the best book she’s read on the island. It’s written by Pulitzer Prize–winning author James A. Michener, who wrote the book in 1959! James brings Hawaii’s epic history vividly to life in a classic saga that has captivated readers for decades. From Amazon:

“As the volcanic Hawaiian Islands sprout from the ocean floor, the land remains untouched for centuries—until, little more than a thousand years ago, Polynesian seafarers make the perilous journey across the Pacific, flourishing in this tropical paradise according to their ancient traditions. Then, in the early nineteenth century, American missionaries arrive, bringing with them a new creed and a new way of life. Based on exhaustive research and told in Michener’s immersive prose, Hawaii is the story of disparate peoples struggling to keep their identity, live in harmony, and, ultimately, join together.”

If you’re into history and Hawaii, this book should be on your summer reading list.
