Samuel Kamakau
Softcover, 527 pp.

Eighteenth-century Hawaiian historian Samuel Manaiakalani Kamakau traces Hawai`i’s history from `Umi, high chief eight generations before Kamehameha I, to the death of Kamehameha III in 1854. This volume covers the arrival of Captain James Cook, the consolidation of the Hawaiian kingdom by Kamehameha I, the coming of the missionaries, and the changes affecting the kingdom through the reign of Kamehameha III.

This history was originally written by Kamakau in Hawaiian as a series of newspaper articles in the 1860s and 1870s. The English translation was by a team of esteemed Hawaiian scholars: Mary Kawena Pukui, Thomas G. Thrum, Lahilahi Webb, Emma Davidson Taylor, and John Wise and first published in 1961.
