This personal and national political history tells the honest truth of how Hawai'i became a part of the United States: by theft. But that's not all it does. It tells the story of a good woman's life, describes Hawai'ian culture, and recounts many other aspects of Hawai'ian history than just the political. Details such as erupting volancoes, Hawai'ian mythology, hula, food, customs of hospitality including luaus and leis, and the point of view of the Hawai'ian people are included in depth. This book was Queen Lili'uokalani's one chance to set the record straight about her own view of what happened, her own and her people's code of ethics and conduct, and how she felt about all of it. It proves that the Hawai'ian people had a much stronger code of ethics and conduct than the American missionaries, entrepreneurs, plantation owners, and other foreign capitalists who made up their minds to steal Hawai'i, regardless of anything that might stand in their way.

Queen Liliuokalani gives a detailed account of her life and the betrayal of the American Government as they overthrow her from power. Great insight into history. Her travels through the United States on her way to England to visit the Queen is full of history. Also her later visit to Boston, Washington D.C. and New York is full of history. I really felt the pain that this remarkable lady was going through. It really made me feel angry about how she was treated and sad that the United States Government took the measures it did to take her power away from her. This book is a must for anyone who wants to understand an important part of Hawaiian history.
