A Hawaiian reader.
A hawaiian Reader, by A. Grove Day and Carl Stroven (Mutual Publishing, Honolulu, 1984; $2.95). this fine compilation of writings about Hawaii is newly reprinted in paperback. It includes an eyewitness account of Captain Cook's death at the hand of the natives who a month earlier had proclaimed him a god. You'll also find missionary Hiram Bingham's description of his campaign to uplift two groups--American whalemen and Hawaiian women--whose mutal attraction he considered dangerous. Mark Twain, Robert Louis Stevenson, and somerset Maugham are among the other voices heard.
