Description


Talking Hawaii's Story is the first major book in over a generation to present a rich sampling of the landmark work of Hawaii's Center for Oral History. Twenty-nine extensive oral histories introduce readers to the sights and sounds of territorial Waikiki, to the feeling of community in Palama, in Kona, or on the island of Lanai, and even to the experience of a German national interned by the military government after Pearl Harbor. The result is a collection that preserves Hawaii's social and cultural history through the narratives of the people who lived it--co-workers, neighbors, family members, and friends.

An Introduction by Warren Nishimoto and Michi Kodama-Nishimoto provides historical context and information about the selection and collection methods. Photos of the interview subjects accompany each oral history. For further reading, an appendix also provides information about the Center for Oral History's major projects.
