This guide to Hawaii’s precious cultural treasures makes the ancient sites of Maui, Molokai, and Lanai accessible to the general public for the first time. Grouped by location, author Van James characterizes the cultural background of five main types of sites: Heiau (temples), pohaku (sacred stones), kii pohaku (petroglyphs), ana (caves), and loko ia (fishponds). The legends, the traditional as well as the recent history, and the archaeology of thirty-two sites are described and accompanied by photographs, illustrations, maps, and directions.
