Inhaltsangabe: In Hawaii, Pulitzer Prize?winning author James Michener weaves the classic saga that brought Hawaii?s epic history vividly alive to the American public on its initial publication in 1959, and continues to mesmerize even today.
The volcanic processes by which the Hawaiian Islands grew from the ocean floor were inconceivably slow, and the land remained untouched by man for countless centuries until, little more than a thousand years ago, Polynesian seafarers made the perilous journey across the Pacific and discovered their new home. They lived and flourished in this tropical paradise according to their ancient traditions and beliefs until, in the early nineteenth century, American missionaries arrived, bringing a new creed and a new way of life to a Stone Age society. The impact of the missionaries had only begun to be absorbed when other national groups, with equally different customs, began to migrate in great numbers to the islands. The story of modern Hawaii, and of this novel, is one of how disparate peoples, struggling to keep their identity yet live with one another in harmony, ultimately joined together to build America?s strong and vital fiftieth state.

From America's foremost storyteller, James A. Michener: his bestselling epic of the magical and exotic paradise Hawaii.
Only James A. Michener could so vividly and dramatically bring to life the history and spirit of Hawaii and its people. Michener fells the story of be passionate and beautiful Polynesians, who flourished in the islands according to their ancient, simple traditions until the nineteenth century -- when American missionaries arrived and brought with them a radically different way of life that demanded moral and religious conversion of the natives. The inevitable clash would precipitate human sacrifice, murder and, eventually, war as the proud Polynesians struggled to preserve their identity and the essence of their islands.
Past and present, fact and fiction are woven together in a spell of enchantment as this compelling drama plays itself out against the lush tropic of Hawaii.
