I really liked this biography of Duke Kahanamoku. This was a very well written and illustrated book about the famous Hawaiian surfer and Olympic swimmer. This book chronicled through highly effective narrative, Duke's life and accomplishments in surfing and swimming. It is told very candidly and includes the times when it was difficult for Duke to achieve success because of obstacles and discrimination.

A great book!
