Scouring Books: Hawaii

Hawaii
by James Michener

originally published in 1959

At the clubhouse for my apartment complex, there's a residents library that I've periodically gotten books from, and that's how I ended up with my first Micheners (I recently obsessed over Texas, which I found at Goodwill one week, but didn't the next). This may be one of those important authors who may be in danger of being overlooked, once the initial excitement of his career has worn off. It just seems as if he's got a good vision of history. I may know more when I actually get around to reading him.
