Overview

Discovering Hawaii is likely to be a lifetime labor of love, not easily accomplished during a two-week vacation. Yet insights do reward those travelers who approach the Islands and their people with open minds and hearts, humor, and humility, even if the encounters are brief. Travelers' Tales: Hawaii gathers compelling essays by major writers about this magical destination. The book features personal stories from new voices and literary stars. They include veteran travel writers, first-time visitors, Kamaaina residents, and native Hawaiians. The complexities of Hawaii — from its spiritual resonances to its inexplicable addiction to Spam — are beautifully conveyed in such varied essays as Rick Bass’s “Paradise Rising” and Rob Walsh’s “The Tropic of Spam.” These stories reveal Hawaii in a way no ordinary travel book could, shedding light on why millions have traveled — and continue to travel — to these remote islands in search of paradise.

    Paradise revisted

    This eclectic collection of essays written by an assortment of travel writers that include Paul Theroux who lives in Hawaii, Englishman, Jonathan Raban, who loves the ocean, but does not like the sand, and a host of lesser known authors captures the spirit of Hawai'i. Each author brings a different prospective and reflection upon the nuances of paradise. My personal favorite is, Travels with Bird, by Hawaiian Sally-Jo Keala-O-Anuenue Bowman who walks in the footsteps of Isabelle Bird an English travel writer who toured the Island horseback in the 1873. I read Bird's account and loved receiving a modern look at her adventure. Birdland: Lullaby of Midway written by editor, Marcie Carroll, lets us know there are much more to the 132 Hawaiian Islands than high end hotels and powdery sand beaches. This unique, thoughtful collection is a fine example of the Traveler's Tales tradition.
    A huge bonus is Rick Carroll's back of the book guide to his favorite places in the Islands.
