This entirely revised, updated, full color edition of the book includes numerous additional sites and expanded site descriptions with photographs. Although many remnants of ancient Hawai‘i are accessible, they are often hidden, and few sources provide comprehensive interpretive information. In this informative and easy-to-follow book by Kapalapala Po‘okela award-winning author, Van James, highlights the features, legends, and archaeology of dozens of central Hawaiian sites. Each site description includes a color photograph, directions, and a map for easy location. While the book is organized for touring the island sites region by region, cross-referenced lists make it easy to develop alternatives according to personal interest.
A preface by the late Hawaiian authority, Edward L. H. Kanahele, gives readers an understanding of the intimate connection Hawaiians feel to the land and its features. He describes the concept of wahi pana, sacred places of Hawai‘i, which are imbued with spiritual significance. Kahu Kapiiohookalani Lyons Naone contributes another perspective on these ideas in his Foreword.
A must-have for visitors and kama‘āina alike, this book provides an introduction to little known or misunderstood cultural treasures.
