Kepler: Hawaiian Heritage Plants (Google eBook)
Almost ninety percent of Hawai'i's native flora are found nowhere else in the world. Here is a revised edition of a favorite guidebook to these and other plants (indigenous and pre-contact) that comprise some of the most unique ecosystems in the world. In a series of essays, the author weaves cultural and biological, historical and geographic, aesthetic and spiritual aspects of Hawaiian ecology into non-technical accounts of 32 plants important to early Hawaiians.
