Item Description

Enjoy these four books pertaining to icons and wellknown events in Hawaii's history.

Book One: "To Raise A Nation"

By Mary Cooke

This book is autographed by the author. Copyright 1970.

Excerpt from the foreword: "In historic fact, and in most of its incidents, this is the true story of a band of young Americans who raised the pillars of a free nation in nineteenth-century Hawaii."

Book Two: "Broken Trust: Greed, Mismanagement & Political Manipulation at America's Largest Charitable Trust"

By Samuel P. King and Randall W. Roth

Copyright 2006.

Excerpt from the acknowledgements: "This book describes events in the political, economic, and educational life of Hawai'i that were precipitated by the turmoil at Kamehameha Schools/Bishop Estate between 1997 and 1999."

Books Three and Four: "Memoir of Keopuolani, Late Queen of the Sandwich Islands"

Copyright 1825

Excerpt from introduction: "This present seems to be an appropriate time to reprint this brief memoir of Queen Keopuolani, the earliest convert to Christianity at the Hawaiian Islands. She was a worthy compeer of Kapiolani and Kaahumanu, and her life gave signal evidence of the transforming power of the Gospel. This narrative was drawn up by Rev. W. Richards at Lahaina in 1824."
