Rich Budnick’s book Hawaii’s Forgotten History is the rewind button of 20th Century history in Hawaii. With no particular agenda – except for the stated one that the author was conscious that not all events important to Hawaii’s history took place in Honolulu – Budnick reveals in a timeline of briefs how we came to be what we are today.
Excellent chronology with historical figures, events, locales clearly, interestingly described. Details relevant aspects of life in the islands from the monarch through territorial and statehood days right through the 20th century.
