These essays on the natural history of Hawaii by some of America's most renowned writers constitute both a literary celebration of the wonders of the islands and a passionate call to action on behalf of what may soon be gone." "From the "discovery" of the islands by Captain James Cook and the early naturalists who wrote of their treasures to contemporary scientists and observers, these essays capture the history and magnificence of a land that is part of and yet separate from the United States, at once familiar and exotic. This book is a testament to the biological and geological wealth of this unique and threatened island landscape." "A World Between Waves brings to life Hawaii's magnificent islands and seas, forests and volcanoes. For travelers and armchair travelers alike, it is a compelling and inspirational tour guide."--Jacket." ;
