The Hawaiian Archipelago: Six Months Amongst the Palm Groves, Coral Reefs, and Volcanoes of the Sandwich Islands (Classic Reprint) by Isabella L. Bird

Excerpt from The Hawaiian Archipelago: Six Months Amongst the Palm Groves, Coral Reefs, and Volcanoes of the Sandwich Islands

I was travelling for health, when circumstances induced me to land on the group, and the benefit which I derived from the climate tempted me to remain for nearly seven months. During that time the necessity of leading a life of open air and exercise as a means of recovery, led me to travel on horseback to and fro through the islands, exploring the interior, ascending the highest mountains, visiting the active volcanoes, and remote regions which are known to few even of the residents, living among the natives, and otherwise seeing Hawaiian life in all its phases.

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.
