Brother Noland's motivational classic, The Lessons of Aloha: Stories of the Human Spirit, is the definitive book on aloha. Now published for the first time in hardcover, this unique collection includes inspirational new stories and old favorites, told by island people in their own words—an O`ahu baseball scout, a Big Island wasabi farmer, legendary kupuna Winona Beamer and many others. Here are nearly 50 remarkable islanders—teachers and coaches, artists and entrepreneurs, healers and heroes—each with a message reflecting time-honored local values and the spirit of aloha, introduced by popular entertainer and cultural pioneer Brother Noland, with dramatic portraits by award-winning photographer Shuzo Uemoto. Among them: farmers and fisherman who learn from the land, business executives who give back to the community; kupuna who keep the old ways alive; plain folks who've conquered addiction and personal tragedy, and long-time residents of Kalaupapa. Lessons offers insights from Brother Noland's lifelong search for the meaning of aloha.
