Hawaii's Story by Hawaii's Queen Liliuokalani
Hawaii's Story by Hawaii' Queen is an account of those difficult years at the end of the nineteenth century, when native Hawaiian historian David Malo's prophecy concerning "the small ones" being "gobbled up" came true for the Hawaiian Islands.
When this book was first published in 1898, it was an international plea for justice. Just as Admiral Thomas had restored Hawaiian sovereignty in 1843 following an illegal action by Lord Paulet, Queen Liliuokalani prayed that the American nation would similarly re-establish the Hawaiian throne. Queen Liliuokalani died on November 11, 1917, her poignant plea for justice unanswered. One hundred years later, her people still wait.
