Lanai, a small island south of Maui takes the spotlight in Anderson Duane Black's comprehensive history book. In 1779, Captain Cook's expedition first saw Lanai. In the mid-nineteenth century, further explorations brought "haole" settlers to the shores of Lanai, resulting in mission stations opened by members of the Church of Latter-day Saints. Black's fascinating narrative tells of the island's transition from government by guileless natives to the establishment of control by James Dole's Hawaiian Pineapple Company in the twentieth century. Interviews with prominent Lanaian families acquaint us with details of life on the island during its seventy-year plantation period.
