Hardcover, 182 pp.

This rare collection of more than one hundred songs from the end of the nineteenth century contains the largest number of Hawaiian political and patriotic songs ever printed in one place. Also included in the collection are nonpolitical songs that reflect other personal and public aspects of Hawaiian life of that period. This facsimile reprint of the 1895 Honolulu publication includes an introduction in Hawaiian and English by M. Puakea Nogelmeier and Amy Ku‘uleialoha Stillman.
