“Lucky come Hawai‘i.” History”
Gavan Daws, Shoal Of Time: A History Of The Hawaiian Islands

“The tides run, the sun sets, the night passes, and in the morning, just at dawn, the islands come into view again as they did for Cook so long ago, a fresher green breast of the new world than ever the old Atlantic sailors saw, and still a place of gentle, beckoning beauty.”
Gavan Daws, Shoal Of Time: A History Of The Hawaiian Islands

“But by Alexander Liholiho’s time some of them at least were ready to let their cables into the earth and accept the kingdom, with all its faults, as home.”
Gavan Daws, Shoal Of Time: A History Of The Hawaiian Islands
