About the book:

Hawaii Pono translates as 'Hawaii the Excellent'... and so it has seemed to the many ethnic groups who have made her the melting pot of the Pacific, as well as to the innumerable tourists who choose Hawaii as the premier vacation spot.

Through meticulous research, Lawrence H. Fuchs has brought together the Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, and native Hawaiian cultural contributions and detailed the impact of American settlers...plantation entrepreneurs, dedicated teachers, devoted missionaries... from the time they assumed control of the islands in 1893 until statehood was voted by Congress in 1959.
