About this title
Text originally published in 1847. Missionary life and labors in Hawaii (1820-1841) with detailed descriptions of revival, Hawaii's land and people in the 1800's. Hiram Bingham was among the first Christian Missionaries to the Kingdom of Hawaii and knew very well the kings and rulers of that country. This lengthy volume contains meticulous and vivid descriptions and accounts of the transformation of the people of the Hawaiian Islands and is separated into yearly chapters relating also to the current ruler of that year. Although quite long, a person reading this book will find themselves quite familiar with the daily lives and culture of both the early missionaries and the year by year history of the kingdom of Hawaii during which it was transformed from a primitive society to a civilized and organized country. This edition has been produced using restored flowing text from an original and is NOT a "Scan Copy."About the Author:
