Part of a national series of local history books, this volume contains over 200 photographs, many of which were gleaned from the archives of the Kaua’i Museum, Kaua’i Historical Society and the Mission Houses Museum Library. In 1778, on the brink of Western contact, Kaua’i was its own kingdom, and King Kaumuali’i—the king of Kaua’i who challenged Kamehameha and managed to keep Kaua’i from being conquered by him—would not be born for two more years.
The oldest and northernmost of the main Hawaiian Islands, Kaua’i did not see missionary contact until 1820. From the moment that the Western World became aware of Kaua’i, it has gathered admirers who came to experience its exquisite beauty and wonder. Many photographers have had their own love affairs with Kaua’i, leaving a vast amount of documentation from the perspective of outside visitors. This book portrays beautiful Kaua’i specifically through their eyes.
