Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:
The epic saga of the fiftieth state traces its fascinating history from the fiery volcanoes that formed the islands to the strength and character of the original Polynesians to the early nineteenth-century arrival of American missionaires, in a multi-faceted historical novel. Reprint. 40,000 first printing..

Review:
"[A] brilliant panoramic novel about Hawaii from its volcanic origins to its recent statehood. It is a complex and fascinating subject, and it is rendered here with a wealth of scholarship, of literary imagination and of narrative skill, so that the large and diverse story is continually interesting."

Maxwell Geisman, New York Times Book Review, 11/22/1959

Review:
"[O]ne of the most enlightening books ever written, either of fact or fiction, about the integration of divergent peoples into a composite society...even more thrilling than the reliving of events, exciting, tense, often stupendous as many of them were. What makes the novel unforgettable is not only the deep understanding of national dreams and ways of life, not only the exciting panorama of events, but the human beings who were the motivators and the movers in the creation of today's Hawaii."

Fanny Butcher, Chicago Tribune, 11/22/1959

Book Description: Random House USA Inc, United States, 2002. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. 201 x 134 mm. Brand New Book. Pulitzer Prize-winning author James A. Michener brings Hawaii s epic history vividly to life in a classic saga that has captivated readers since its initial publication in 1959. As the volcanic Hawaiian Islands sprout from the ocean floor, the land remains untouched for centuries--until, little more than a thousand years ago, Polynesian seafarers make the perilous journey across the Pacific, flourishing in this tropical paradise according to their ancient traditions. Then, in the early nineteenth century, American missionaries arrive, bringing with them a new creed and a new way of life. Based on exhaustive research and told in Michener s immersive prose, Hawaii is the story of disparate peoples struggling to keep their identity, live in harmony, and, ultimately, join together. Praise for Hawaii Wonderful . . . [a] mammoth epic of the islands. -- The Baltimore Sun One novel you must not miss! A tremendous work from every point of view--thrilling, exciting, lusty, vivid, stupendous. -- Chicago Tribune From Michener s devotion to the islands, he has written a monumental chronicle of Hawaii, an extraordinary and fascinating novel. -- Saturday Review Memorable . . . a superb biography of a people. -- Houston Chronicle.
