Synopsis: Fascinating and thorough look at the narrow gauge railways that once crisscrossed the islands of Hawaii serving the sugar cane plantations. Each island is treated separately as are the companies on that island, so that the information is as detailed and precise as possible. Given the importance of the industry to Hawaii's history, there is also a great deal of information on the political and cultural aspects of Hawaiian life in the 1800s and 1900s. Includes rosters for each plantation and data from the Baldwin Locomotive Works. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos and diagrams. With list of Hawaiian research facilities with photos collected by Ray Jerome Baker. Hawaiian photographic collections containing the photos collected by Ray Jerome Baker. Invaluable reference work. With decorative end papers. 400 pages.
