From America's foremost storyteller, James A. Michener: his bestselling epic of the magical and exotic paradise Hawaii.
Only James A. Michener could so vividly and dramatically bring to life the history and spirit of Hawaii and its people. Michener fells the story of be passionate and beautiful Polynesians, who flourished in the islands according to their ancient, simple traditions until the nineteenth century -- when American missionaries arrived and brought with them a radically different way of life that demanded moral and religious conversion of the natives. The inevitable clash would precipitate human sacrifice, murder and, eventually, war as the proud Polynesians struggled to preserve their identity and the essence of their islands.
Past and present, fact and fiction are woven together in a spell of enchantment as this compelling drama plays itself out against the lush tropic of Hawaii.
