Enjoy the warmth, spirit, and adventure of Kauai in 50 inspiring, humorous and touching personal stories told by the island’s people. Feel the ocean spray as residents share their love of surfing, canoe paddling and strolling along secluded sun-drenched beaches, often making for the only footsteps in the sand. Learn the hula from women who keep the traditional native dance alive. Laugh with people as they recall innocent childhoods growing up island-style in multicultural sugar plantation “camps”, going barefoot until high school and making toys of whatever was on hand. Chuckle at humorous tales of acceptance and affection for the island’s wild chicken population. Journey thousands of miles across oceans in a voyaging canoe with sailors who navigate only by the stars, the moon, the sun and waves as their ancestors did when they discovered Hawaii more than 1,500 years ago. This expanded second edition features a larger format, additional stories, and photographs.
