Item description for Travelers' Tales Hawai'i: True Stories (Travelers' Tales Guides) by Rick Carroll & Marcie Carroll...

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about Travelers' Tales Hawai'i: True Stories (Travelers' Tales Guides)?

Island Paradise Revisited  Aug 31, 2008
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. Wai-nani, High Chiefess of Hawai'i-Her Epic Journey

A very solid Hawai'i travel book - What to see when in the aloha state!  Jun 15, 2006
When I have been to Hawai'i, I've
found it's good to go in the off-
season (Feb.-thru-May), go to the
Pro Bowl, AFC-NFC Conference Cham-
pionship game, The Big Island; The
Volcano(s), Moloka'i; Moloka'i Ranch,
Ni'ihu is accessable only by helicop-
ter, Ko'olawe must be gone to by ar-
rangement by boat to help clean up;
it was used by US Military as dumping
ground, 1944-71; Maui has great Harbour
and Luaus. Kaua'i also has great Luaus
and Kilaea Lighthouse / Wildlife Refuge.
Maui is also the burial place for the
late, great Amer-I-can aviator Charles
Lindbergh, Jr. NCAA Hula Bowl played
there every year right before the Pro
Bowl. Lana'i is the private Isle; only
two placesa to stay, 2,700 people and
one town Lana'i City; a great place to
get away from hustle and bustle of Oah'u.
See 'Em all. The Aloha State, 'No Ka Oi'!
