A brief biography of the last queen of Hawaii, whose love of her country led her to write its anthem, "Aloha Oe," and to work to preserve Hawaiian customs
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
Gr 3-5--This concise overview is as much a history of Hawaii as it is a biography of Queen Liliuokalani. Guzzetti recounts the events of Lydia's (later Queen Liliuokalani) life, but intersperses bits of Hawaiian tradition and lore along the way. Full-color and black-and-white photographs and reproductions are attractive and informative, though not particularly eye-catching. It is doubtful that readers will have much luck with the list for further reading; the most recent title about Queen Liliuokalani included has a 1975 publication date. But overall, as much for its emphasis on Hawaiian history as for its focus on a fascinating woman, this book is a useful addition to libraries.
