Kauai Stories

Posted: Updated:
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

The joy of life in Hawaii comes alive in a new feel-good book, Kauai Stories: Life on the Garden Island told by Kauai's People, a collection of more than 50 touching, humorous and inspiring personal stories. As you get to know the people, you will feel the joy of living in Hawaii.

Feel the ocean spray as Kauai residents share their love of surfing, canoe racing and strolling along secluded white sand beaches, often making the only footsteps in the sand. Experience the caring and "aloha" of Hawaii's people as they spontaneously help one another daily. Follow a woman who danced hula as a young girl then, as an adult, become a respected hula instructor.

Sail across oceans in a voyaging canoe, navigating only by the stars, the moon, the sun and waves as Polynesians did when they discovered Hawaii more than 1,500 years ago. Laugh with people recalling innocent childhoods growing up on Kauai, making toys of whatever was on hand, like Frisbees made from car-flattened, sun-dried toads. Chuckle at humorous tales of acceptance and affection for the island's abundant wild rooster and hen population.

Written entirely in the first-person, Kauai Stories feels as though you are chatting with people of the island from the front porch of your own Hawaiian cottage. You will learn that the Garden Island's stunning beauty is surpassed only by the warmth of her people.

Kauai Stories: Life on the Garden Island told by Kauai's People is available in paperback on Amazon and all e-book formats on Amazon, iTunes and Barnes & Noble. Visit www.kauaistories.net <http://www.kauaistories.net/> for excerpts, sound bites and several videos of people in the book.
