Abstract:

At the end of the 1800s, when Oberlin graduate Ida May Pope accepted a teaching job at Kawaiaha'o Seminary, a boarding school for girls, she couldn't have imagined it would become a lifelong career of service to Hawaiian women, or that she would become closely involved in the political turmoil soon to sweep over the Kingdom of Hawai'i. This book is a day-by-day accounting of the events surrounding the coup d'etat as seen through the eyes of Pope's young students. The 1893 Hawaiian Revolution that happened literally outside the school's windows. Queen Lili'uokalani's adopted daughter's long-lost oral history recording; many of Pope's teaching contemporaries' unpublished diaries, letters, and scrapbooks; and photographs tell a story that has never been told before.
