Book DescriptionA comet blazes across the night sky, heralding the birth of a powerful king who will rule the Hawaiian Islands. Then a baby is spirited away to the mountains to escape a jealous chief wary of the prophecy. As dramatic as a Greek myth, thestory of Kamehameha the Great, Hawai'i's warrior king, is retold here for readers of all ages. From his childhood in exile to his return to court and the lifting of the great Naha Stone, we follow this brave and ambitious youth as he paves his way to becoming first conqueror and then monarch of a unified Hawaiian kingdom.
