  • In Fire & Fury: 35 Years of Eruptions at Kilauea Volcano, the Honolulu Star-Advertiser chronicles that 35-year span with over 200 photos, many from Star-Advertiser photographers who covered the geological marvel over the decades. Special fold-out pages introduce six phases of the eruptive activity, with stories and maps to remind readers of the events and how they impacted the surrounding communities. “It’s important to note that Kilauea is still an active volcano that will erupt in the future, and associated hazards have not changed,” reported the U.S. Geological Survey’s Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.
  • We all remember the Junior League cookbooks with their sumptuous recipes covering the gamut of island cooking. Over 200,000 copies were sold during a twenty-year period beginning in the 1980s through the first decade of the twenty-first century. Almost every household in Hawai‘i had at least one cookbook. Now by popular demand, here are the best and favorite dishes sure to please every palate—from everyday recipes to special occasion dinners, from snacks to delicious desserts.
  • More feared and respected than loved, Kamehameha has come to be a revered symbol of Hawaiian resolve, strength, capability and independence. He was a violent, unforgiving warrior and the consummate chief, the fulfillment of centuries of warfare that ended only after all his competitors had all been vanquished, he and his dynasty destined for greatness and tragedy.
  • Time for lunch! This mixed plate lunch is a mix of three board books for the hungry toddler set—one book about rice, one about salad, and one listing some of Hawai‘i’s favorite main dishes. It’s the perfect set of books to have for the budding foodie and a great gift to take home and share with friends and family what exactly a mixed plate lunch is.
  • This book is a celebration of inspiring women who have contributed to the growth and development of the Aloha State determined by their spheres of influence, dedication, and commitment to their craft, industries, and the Hawaiian community. All of them have demonstrated their ability to rise above the ordinary and push the margins as frontier.
