Overview

Glory By The Wayside takes you on a tour of old Hawaii - away from the resorts and crowded beaches to glorious settings of incomparable beauty. From the Victorian architecture of St. Benedict's in Honaunau with its hand-painted interior to the Molokai churches of Father Damien, this is a picture book about the old hand-made churches that dot the Hawaiian Islands - with an introduction to their history and architecture.

Each of the 37 churches featured has a story to tell - often a story of the first immigrants to Hawaii - the Germans, the Portuguese, the Chinese, the Japanese and the Filipinos. Included is information on the oldest church in Hawaii, the churches where royalty once worshiped, the site of aviator Charles Lindberg's grave, as well as representations from the Big Island, Kauai, Lanai, Maui, Molokai and Oahu, and includes all of the churches listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

While by no means complete, this exquisite sampler invites the reader to venture out and make their own discoveries among the scores of other old churches in Hawaii.

William and Susan Ecenbarger have for the past two decades, traveled the world, writing and photographing more than 300 articles for major magazines and newspapers for a global audience. One of their favorite places is Hawaii where, during numerous trips since 1990, they became fascinated with the old island churches. Their interest blossomed into a newspaper story, a magazine article, and now their beautifully photographed pictorial, Glory By The Wayside.
