    Book details


Capt. James Cook stood on his ship gazing at the coastline of Kauai and the Hawaiian village of Waimea in 1778. Kauai was its own kingdom then, and King Kaumualii the king of Kauai who challenged Kamehameha and managed to keep Kauai from being conquered by him would not be born for two more years. The oldest and northernmost of the main Hawaiian Islands, Kauai did not see well-meaning missionaries until 1820. From the moment Cook put Kauai on the map, it has gathered admirers from all over the world who come to experience its exquisite beauty and wonder. Fortunately, many photographers have had their own love affairs with Kauai, leaving a vast amount of documentation."

Stormy Cozad has a bachelor of arts in English and a master s in education from Boston University. Now a retired teacher and writer, she is concentrating on her three loves: history, photography, and Kauai. She lost her heart to Kauai in 1962 on her first visit and has been a full-time resident since 1973. This volume contains over 200 photographs, many of which were gleaned from the archives of the Kauai Museum, Kauai Historical Society, and the Mission Houses Museum Library.
