Life on Kauai comes alive in this collection of more than 50 touching, inspiring and humorous personal stories woven together to paint a picture of the Garden Island.

Discover the joy and aloha spirit of Kauai's people through their stories of growing up island-style, living in multi-cultural sugar plantation "camps," going barefoot until high school and making toys of whatever was on hand, like Frisbees from car-flattened, sun-dried toads.
Journey with Kauai people who have sailed thousands of miles across oceans in a voyaging canoe, navigating only by the stars, the moon, the sun and waves as their ancestors did when they discovered Hawaii more than 1,500 years ago.

Get to know patriotic Japanese American soldiers born in Hawaii as they fight for the United States in World War II against Japan, the country of their parents' birth.

Dance with women who are keeping the ancient art of hula alive.Hop aboard a surfboard and ride a wave. 
Catch the spirit of the Garden Island from an insider's perspective, through the voices of Kauai's people.
