Overview

Many people think of O'ahu and remember the small parts they know best. A particular beach. A favorite restaurant. A hotel pool or a mountain pool. The feeling of standing at the USS Arizona Memorial. The view over the Pali Lookout.

In this volume, the many parts of the island, the remarkable range of views, are brought together in one place. Readers can compare the windward beaches with those on the leeward side, can inspect the mountainsides and the broad valleys, and in many cases can see things none but the most experienced islander ever sees.

It is hard to imagine a more thorough and accomplished pair of guides than master photographer Douglas Peebles and veteran Island journalist Jan TenBruggencate. Peebles takes to the air and ventures under the sea to capture the essence of the Islands in ways few have ever seen them. TenBruggencate has chased down stories on foot, by air and by boat on each of the uninhabited islands and several of the uninhabited ones. Their collaboration reveals an island alive and vibrant.
