    A Great Tribute To The Princess!

    I also have Zambucka's earlier pictorial edition of this book...now unfortunately out of print.The old photos of Kaiulani's home in Waikiki and other glimpses of her short life were unforgettable.Many of her personal letters are included (also in this edition) and addresses of places where she stayed in England and Scotland prompted me to take a trip and retrace her steps...This book is an inspiration to those who love Princess Kaiulani.
