Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

"[A] mammoth epic of the islands, [a] vast panorama, wonderful." THE BALTIMORE SUN America's preeminent storyteller, James Michener, introduced an entire generation of readers to a lush, exotic world in the Pacific with this classic novel. But it is also a novel about people, people of strength and character; the Polynesians; the fragile missionaries; the Chinese, Japanese, and Filipinos who intermarried into a beautiful race called Hawaiians. Here is the story of their relationships, toils, and successes, their strong aristocratic kings and queens and struggling farmers, all of it enchanting and very real in this almost mythical place.


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
