With few exceptions, histories of Hawai'i were dependent solely on English-language resources. they've got now not taken into consideration the millions of pages of newspapers, books, and letters written within the mom tongue of local Hawaiians. via carefully studying a lot of those records, Silva fills a vital hole within the old checklist.
