Talk Story

From UH Press

"Talking Hawaii's Story is the first major book in over a generation to present a rich sampling of the landmark work of Hawai`i'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 Hawai`i's social and cultural history through the narratives of the people who lived it--co-workers, neighbors, family members, and friends."
