Description

Excerpt from Improvement Era, Vol. 28: December, 1924 We had heard so much of the temple and its surroundings that we were anticipating the unusual beauties of. This sacred spot, but I think no member of the party anticipated the thrill that came at the Pali. The Pali is the pass or summit between Honolulu and Laie. We were told that Pali means the god of wind. If so this is an appropriate name, for the wind at the top of this precipice, twelve hundred feet high, is certainly severe, and it is said to continue without ceasing. From this point the view presented of the black volcanic moun tains on the extreme left, the blue Pacific with its white caps on the extreme right, with tropical vegetation, the yellowish green of the cane fields, the gray of the pineapple areas, and the streaks of brilliantly red soil between, present, as one author has said, one of the most un. Expected and amazingly beautiful views in all the world. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
