Hawaii tells the story of an uncharted melting pot of cultures, homogenized and "conquered" by the United States. It traces Hawaii's path from an undisturbed island chain to its current statehood, where only 10% of the population is Native Hawaiian.
The Simple History Series are intended to be informative and entertaining for interested readers of all ages. In an effort to provide a simple picture of how and why things happened, each edition explains an important historical moment in story form, with hand-drawn illustrations and maps.
