This book invites you to an island described by many as paradise. Behold Kaua`i is designed to bring you lasting enjoyment and insight through the poet’s eyes, and a sense of this far-flung and ancient island in modern times and from a Hawaiian cultural and historical perspective.

Behold Kaua`i is not meant to be read in one sitting, but savored as one savors and enjoys a special friend or lover, or a favorite place in which to dream and renew. As with a best friend or love who remains constant and vital, it is hoped that your initial encounter and many return engagements deepen and intensify your experience with this collection of sensitive and sensuous poems and descriptive notes.
