As an aspiring teenager photographer, Bruce McAllister documented life in Hana, Hawai'i's Paradise, in the 1950's, shooting Kodachrome photographs with his reliable Leica. In this book he has added historical photographs from local and multiple sources to compile this book. There are rare photographs of Paul Fagan who turned Hana from a failing sugar mill into an exotic tourist destination. There are also chapters on the infamous but colorful Hana Highway, Hana's beaches, the original Hotel Hana-Maui, the famous Hasegawa General Store, Kaupo, Haleakala National Park, and Charles Lindbergh's last years in Kipahulu. He has dedicated this book "to the people of Hana".
