Local History Books on Hawaii
When it comes to American destinations that can truly be described as “paradise on Earth,” Hawaii is nearly unparalleled. However, it’s important to understand that Hawaii is as historic and culturally significant as it is beautiful. For instance, Hawaii is the only U.S. state where coffee is grown commercially. It also produces more than a third of the entire world’s pineapples, and was the 50th state to be admitted to the union.

There’s so much to learn about Hawaii, but the best way to get an intimate, first-hand account of the culture and society is through local interest literature.
