by Charles Nordhoff.
Hawaii-Nei is the name for the collective kingdom of Hawaii, and these two articles from over a century ago tell of the islands' history and people, rains, and volcanic eruptions. The islands were still relatively native and natural during our author's visit, and he tells of their traits and early religion. Foreword is by Russell Apple, Pacific Historian of the National Park Service.
Engravings--including some by Thomas Moran--show the land, the seascapes, homes, public buildings, and the people--eating poi, dancing the hula, surfing. 40 pages.
