Princess Ka'iulani
By

Rating
On March 1, 1893, Princess Ka'iulani, the seventeen-year-old crown princess of Hawaii, stepped onto the pier at New York City. She was greeted by a crowd of reporters and onlookers who knew that, in many ways, she stood at a crossroads in history. Fully aware of the significance of her visit, she prayed that she could help persuade the American government to return her beautiful islands to the Hawaiian people. This biography tells the fascinating--and little-known--story of Princess Ka'iulani's life and courageous fight for Hawaiian independence. Using many newly translated journals and letters, Sharon Linnea introduces young readers to the most beloved figure in Hawaiian history, and one of America's most overlooked Christian heroines.
