Kohala of Hawaii: A Story of the Sandwich Islands Revolution (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Kohala of Hawaii: A Story of the Sandwich Islands RevolutionNo alien land in all the world has so strong an attrae tion, so profound a charm for the American who has trod its emerald shores, as beautiful Hawaii - the native, and hence the proper, name for what Captain Cook, their discoverer, called the Sandwich Islands. Sleeping or waking, how lovingly its beauties haunt me as I, fresh from its ever-blooming gardens and ever-burn ing volcanoes, sit downovingly its beauties haunt me as I, fresh from its ever-blooming gardens and ever-burn ing volcanoes, sit down to write, from a heart that is full of it, the story of the last great drama enacted in that fair land, for whose possession the maritime nations of the world are intriguing to-day.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
