Founded in 1844, Oahu Cemetery--located in lush Nuuanu Valley on the island of Oahu--is Hawaii's most historic graveyard. Hundreds of history makers--including the "Father" of American baseball, Alexander J. Cartwright--are resting peacefully here. Noted graveyard historian, author and photographer, Nanette Napoleon Purnell, brings this graveyard to life through vivid stories of family tragedies, political intrigue and heroism on the high seas. Over 200 color photographs capture the wonderful array of tombstone art and architecture that make this site such a beautiful outdoor museum.
