Book DescriptionFor generations, Hawai`i's flowers and plants have inspired authors, poets, song-smiths and travel writers - from the creation chants of the Kumulipo to the lyrics of the hapa haole classics, from travelogues of Mark Twain and Robert Louis Stevenson to the verse of today's poets. In this stunning photographic work, award-winning author-designers Jim and Virginia Wageman match excerpts from literature with 50 Island flowers and plants - weaving a unique literary lei of beauty, inspirationand cultural diversity.
