It was once a barren wilderness five thousand miles beyond an unknown sea, first alighted upon by the men from Tahiti, who brought women, seed coconuts and good eating dogs. Nine hundred years later, it became the fabled island paradise sought out by settlers and seafarers, merchants and missionaries, fugitives and fortune-hunters. Here, stunningly evoked in all its beauty, mystery and exotic splendour, and peopled by a cast of unforgettable characters, is the vast, sweeping story of Hawaii.
