This anthology contains thirty-seven selections from the work of thirty authors who have written about Hawaii. The selections have been arranged in chronological order by date of incident or setting, starting with the discovery of the islands by Captain Cook. Five pieces representing ancient Hawaiian literature and lore have been placed at the end of the book. Each selection is preceded by a brief introduction concerning the author and the particular offering. The texts, written by many hands over almost two hundred years, have not been changed except to modernize the spelling and punctuation.
