Hawaii-Nei, 1873


by Charles Nordhoff.

Hawaii-Nei is the name for the collective kingdom of Hawaii, and these two articles from over a century ago tell of the islands' history and people, rains, and volcanic eruptions. The islands were still relatively native and natural during our author's visit, and he tells of their traits and early religion.  Foreword is by Russell Apple, Pacific Historian of the National Park Service.

Engravings show the land, the seascapes, homes, public buildings, and the people--eating poi, dancing the hula, surfing. 40 pages.

Mark Twain in Hawaii--the noted humorist's 1866 visit.

 

by Mark Twain.

The noted humorist's account of his 1866 trip to Hawaii, made at a time when the islands were still more for the natives than for the tourists. Yet Twain visits many of the sites and tries his hand at many of the activities that modern tourists do--he surfs, goes for an ocean canoe ride, sees the City of Refuge, visits the volcano, studies the nobility, and watches the hula. Twain the dreamer admired Hawaii, land of dreams, and he even writes seriously of the scenery, on occasion.

Illustrations are from the original edition of the work, with others added from a similar time period from other sources. 96 pages.

ISBN-10: 0-89646-070-3. ISBN-13: 978-0-89646-070-6. Reprinted 10/99. Order #: VIST0070 paper$6.95
