Aloha Kaua'i: A Childhood takes the reader back to the Kaua'i of the 1950's - back to a time when Kaua'i was a truly isolated island and a trip to Honolulu was a luxury beyond most people. It was a time long before television, a time when radio was still in its infancy.
Author Waimea Williams weaves together a beautiful story and fills the pages of Aloha Kaua'i: A Childhood with compelling anecdotes, heartfelt quotations and a sense of unity that was prevalent in 1950's Kaua'i. She offers a glimpse into the values of the people who inhabited the island in a time where family came first, the elderly were treated with respect regardless of their background or social standing, generosity was a way of life, and public behavior defined you, your family and your ancestors.
