Captive Paradise

by James L. Haley, Captive Paradise Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Captive Paradise books, The most recent state to join the union, Hawaii is the only one to have once been a royal kingdom. After its "discovery" by Captain Cook in the late 18th Century, Hawaii was fought over by European powers determined to take advantage of its position as the crossroads of the Pacific. The arrival of the first missionaries marked the beginning of the struggle between a native culture with its ancient gods, sexual libertinism and rites of human sacrifice, and the rigid values of the Calvinists. While Hawaii's royal rulers adopted Christianity, they also fought to preserve their ancient ways. But the success of the ruthless American sugar barons sealed their fate and in 1893, the American Marines overthrew Lili'uokalani, the last queen of Hawaii. James L. Haley's Captive Paradise is the story of King Kamehameha I, The Conqueror, who unified the islands through terror and bloodshed, but whose dynasty succumbed to inbreeding; of Gilded Age tycoons like Claus Spreckels who brilliantly outmaneuvered his competitors; of firebrand Lorrin Thurston, who was determined that Hawaii be ruled by whites; of President McKinley, who presided over the eventual annexation of the islands. Not for decades has there been such a vibrant and compelling portrait of an extraordinary place and its people.

Literary Breeze From Hawaii

by National Writers Association Honolulu Chapter, Literary Breeze From Hawaii Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Literary Breeze From Hawaii books, These days, it is the trend of writers clubs to publish anthologies of literary works written by their members. In this highly competitive world, it is very difficult for a novice to get published. Publishers tend to go with writers they've worked with before, or writers with agents, leaving beginning writers out in the cold. Short stories, poetry, and essays are very difficult to place. This anthology has not only given us a chance to see our work in print, but also may be a stepping-stone to something bigger and better. At the very least, it gives us a chance to express ourselves. So, sit back and relax. We hope you will enjoy the short stories, poetry, and essays in this volume.
