Synopsis: Queen Emma was the wife of Alexander Liholiho, King Kamehameha IV. While she visited her lands at Lawai, Kauai on several occasions, it was not until after the death of her husband and her only child that she spent a substantial amount of time here. This delightful, historical account of her extended stay at Lawai, much of it in her own words, will interest both historians and the general reader interested in Hawaii. There is a delightful description of her journey, with a retinue of 100 people, across the Alakai Swamp of Kauai.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.: From pg. 7: Upon the return of the party to Waimea, a large feast was prepared in honor of the event. All Waimea was present, at the Kapuniai residence on the night of January 29, where a large lanai had been built on the grounds for the occasion. The house was that built about 1830 by Governor Kaikioewa, which stood on the bluffs on the west side of Waimea valley, where the parsonage for the Foreign Church now stands. At this feast, commemorative meles and chants, composed in honor of the trip up the mountain were recited by Kuapuu, Kaukau, Lilikalani, and Kauai.
