From the pre-war years to statehood and into a new millennium, the Hawaiian Islands came of age like nowhere else. It’s a tale best told by those who lived it—from small kid time to school days to finding a place in sports or show business, in the boardroom or the courtroom. Island Memoirs: The Days of Our Youth is a unique collection of first-person stories from the people who made the headlines—and, more important, the stories behind those headlines. Together, their stories are the story of Hawai‘i. This memorable, moving anthology of aloha showcases the rich history of Hawai‘i’s people—and reminds us of the value of capturing for posterity the precious memories of our formative years.
