PUBLISHER'S DESCRIPTION: This reader-friendly Hawaiian history tells the islands' story from the arrival of the very first Polynesian settlers in the 300s to the most recent strivings for native Hawaiian sovereignty. The harsh regime of Hawaii's chiefs, the landing and death of Captain Cook, Kamehameha's bloody conquests, the profound influence of American missionaries, the wild whaling days, French and British interventions, the sugar barons, the arrival of different ethnic groups to work the plantations, the coup d'etat, the demise of the native monarchy, the coming of US political control, the territorial years, World War I, Pearl Harbor and World War II, the striving for statehood, and the post-war tourist avalanche and economic doldrums-all are part of this history. Hawaii features special sections on the birth and death of the islands, descriptions by famous writers such as Mark Twain, accounts of tsunamis, the great volcanoes, Jaws the wave, hula, Hawaiian cowboys, and the revival of ocean voyaging. Author John H. Chambers holds degrees from three continents and five universities, and has taught history and philosophy in colleges and universities in the United States, Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand. Fascinated by Hawaii's panoramas, its people, and its past, he has made more than twenty visits to Hawaii. He is the author of A Traveller's History of Australia and A Traveller's History of New Zealand and the South Pacific Islands.

Peddling to Hawaii: A Human Powered Odyssey
AUTHOR: Stevie Smith (Forward by Dalai lama)
PUBLISHER: Countryman
DIMENSIONS: 9.4 x 6.2 x 1.2 inches
BINDING: Paperback
PUBLISHER'S DESCRIPTION: In 1994, two English adventurers in their late 20s embarked on Expedition 360, an underfunded attempt, initially sans sponsorship, to circumnavigate the world using only human power. Instead of relying on sails, balloons and motors, Smith and his traveling companion, Jason Lewis, used bicycles, skates, kayaks and their 26-foot pedal boat, "a ruthlessly Spartan composite of varnished plywood, plastic, and steel as cosy as a cheap coffin." Crossing the English Channel that summer, they biked through France, Spain and Portugal, then set forth on a "seemingly endless expanse: 4,250 nautical miles of ocean to pedal across at walking speed." Pedaling through the Atlantic in two-hour day shifts and four-hour night shifts, the duo arrived in Miami 111 days later, and then cycled and skated across America, eventually pedaling the Pacific. Smith is an accomplished writer, contrasting evocative descriptions of dolphins, seascapes and beckoning vistas with stories of days of fatigue, boredom and his own wild fantasies. He interweaves environmental observations and his inner spiritual quest with powerful passages on the more harrowing moments. Neither man had previously spent a night at sea, and mentions of their oversights and inexperience add to the suspense in this entertaining yarn.
