A true story; interesting history, botanical and geographic information. But, best of all a story of the people of Hawaii and the remarkable journey of a daring inquisitive young woman of the Victorian era. This is her journal.

Mateless she cat that would like a mate and kits. Beatiful black pelt with a glossy sheen and soft twilight blue eyes. Warrior of just twelve moons. Extremely active but may leave suddenly because of parents or classes.
