Description

This Victorian travel book sold out in England in 1875, two years after author Isabella Bird made her meticulously observed journey through Hawai‘i. In captivating prose, she recounts her adventures on these mountainous islands, “cleft by deep chasms and ravines of cool shadow and entrancing green.” Even though it was written over a hundred years ago, this book is still interesting and informative particularly to the cultural tourist.
