Publisher Description

Capt. James Cook stood on his ship gazing at the coastline of Kauai and the Hawaiian village of Waimea in 1778. Kauai was its own kingdom then, and King Kaumualii—the king of Kauai who challenged Kamehameha and managed to keep Kauai from being conquered by him—would not be born for two more years. The oldest and northernmost of the main Hawaiian Islands, Kauai did not see well-meaning missionaries until 1820. From the moment Cook put Kauai on the map, it has gathered admirers from all over the world who come to experience its exquisite beauty and wonder. Fortunately, many photographers have had their own love affairs with Kauai, leaving a vast amount of documentation.

Rdubesq ,

It's a picture book of historical photos

Rip. Off. Each "chapter" is two pages or so of mainly incoherent prose then pages on pages of historical photos the "author" basically swiped from the Kaua'i historical society and published as her book. Boo.
