Night Is a Sharkskin Drum is a lyrical evocation of Hawai`i by a
Native poet whose ancestral land has been scarred by tourism, the
American military, and urbanization. Grounded in the ancient grandeur
and beauty of Hawai`i, this collection is a haunted and haunting love
song for a beloved homeland under assault.
