Fictionalized stories of (1) Tahitians who colonized Hawaii circa 800 CE; (2) Missionaries who came in 1822, and their descendants; (3) Chinese from Canton province, imported to work sugar cane; (4) Japanese from Hiroshima province, imported to work sugar cane and pineapple after Chinese began leaving the fields to open shops.  Michener writes with deep understanding and true affection of each of his many characters.
