Summary
  • Examines the nineteenth-century clash between the native Hawaiians and the expanding capitalist powers of America, Britain, and France, centering on Lili'uokalani, the last queen of Hawaii
  • Deftly weaving together a memorable cast of characters, "Lost Hawaii" brings to life the ensuing clash between a vulnerable Polynesian people and relentlessly expanding capitalist powers. Portraits of royalty and rogues, sugar barons, and missionaries combine into a sweeping tale of the Hawaiian Kingdom's rise and fall. At the center of the story is Lili'uokalani, the last queen of Hawai'i
