Abstract:

"In Exploring Lost Hawai'i, Ellie Crowe and William Crowe have created a unique and informative guidebook that provides a tour of a Hawai'i never seen by most visitors - and even many locals. Covering all of the major Hawaiian Islands, this book takes an unexpected route away from that of the traditional guidebook. The result is a journey into the lands of the Hawai'i of old - places of powerful ali'i, wise-kahuna, sacred heiau, and mysterious menehune. Sites of historical and cultural significance on each island are described in detail, and directions are given to each site. The authors provide a great deal of historical information, and they also share their own experiences in visiting these sites and the many stories they collected along the way."--BOOK JACKET.
