About this title


They call it Upcountry — the open country stretching from the cane fields of central Maui to the high slopes of Haleakala. Here, in rare photographs and rich anecdotes, is Upcountry's story: a fascinating tale of sugar barons and shopkeepers, hard-working plantation families and hard-riding Hawaiian cowboys. The photos, many previously unpublished, trace the history of Upcountry's charming, tight-knit communities — Kula, Pa'ia, Makawao, Ulupalakua and many others — with each one keyed to a location on the book's gatefold map. Foreword by fourth-generation rancher Peter Baldwin.


These slim volumes in the "Small Town Series Maui" aren't so much written as assembled by the respective authors, but that doesn't mean they aren't useful works. They are particularly for those visiting these locations for the first times, or for regulars wanting to know more about local history.

Each book is essentially an annotated photo album, and the casual nature of many of the images adds to that impression. Many are family snapshots.

The captions, however, place the images in historic and cultural contexts. Even more useful, the back cover of each volume i a fold-out (and vastly simplified) ""walking map," so that the book is a kind of field guide.

There are many, many "then" photos, and no "now,""so it's up to you to compare and contrast, confirming this is a book to be used on-site. The authors also chose colorful bits of oral history, and the volumes are well-printed and designed. If you're going to these locations, the books are recommended. And, oh, by the way, "historic" takes us into the 1970s. --Burl Burlingame, "Honolulu Star-Bulletin" (copyright 2002)
