"Hawai'i has an incredible, fascinating past", says Brian Nicol, a former editor of Honolulu magazine. "From the blood of Hawaiian warriors flowing in the Iao stream to the blood of U.S. servicemen shed on December 7th, the stories are magnificent and spellbinding. The cast of amazing characters is endless: Robert Wilcox, Father Damien, the queens and kings, Thalia Massey, Mother Waldron. No place on earth has anything like the true stories that made up Hawai'i history". Hawai'i Chronicles presents little known yet highly interesting historical facts about Hawai'i that originally appeared in the pages of Honolulu magazine, the successor to the Paradise of the Pacific. The first issue of Honolulu magazine appeared in July 1966. The editors were Cynthia and David Eyre, and their editorial budget was $250 an issue. From the Eyres through editors Dave Pellegrin, Brian Nicol, and John Heckathorn, Honolulu has been the only general interest magazine published in Hawai'i to carry Hawaiian history on a regular basis, and for that reason it counts many of the best writers of Hawaiian history among its contributors. Bob Dye has selected twenty-nine articles appearing in issues of Honolulu as early as 1979. The articles range from the Islands' volcanic beginnings to the bombing of Pearl Harbor and the first days of World War II. The book will be of interest to current readers of Honolulu magazine, those new to the Islands, and students from high school through college.
