In the 125 year history of the "Molokai Leprosy Settlement," as it was once known, more than 7000 of the afflicted, young and old, were involuntarily confined for life to the ocean-fronted and cliff-backed tongue of land that is Kalaupapa. Such restrictive measures were taken by the government to "protect the sensibilities and the health of the unaffiliated" from the dread disease that swept the island chain. This banishment and isolation continued until 1969. It is with the deepest appreciation to those thousands, living and dead, who were banished for the welfare of others that this book is dedicated. Generously illustrated with maps, manuscripts, and an extensive record of photos, some previously unpublished
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
