How many place names are there in the Hawaiian Islands? Even a rough estimate is impossible. Hawaiians named taro patches, rocks, trees, canoe landings, resting places in the forests, and the tiniest spots where miraculous events are believed to have taken place. And place names are far from static--names are constantly being given to new houses and buildings, streets and towns, and old names are replaced by new ones. It is essential, then, to record the names and the lore associated with them now, while Hawaiians are here to lend us their knowledge. And, whatever the fate of the Hawaiian language, the place names will endure. The first edition of Place Names of Hawaii contained only 1,125 entries. The coverage is expanded in the present edition to include about 4,000 entries, including names in English. Also, approximately 800 more names are included in this volume than appear in the second edition of the Atlas of Hawaii.

A comprehensive guide to the islands of Maui, Molokai, Lanai, Hawaii, Kauai and Oahu by a long-time Hawaii resident. Smaller less-visited islands are also included. Along with the basics getting there, on-island transportation, restaurants, hotels, sightseeing you'll find plenty of outdoor fun. The best diving and snorkeling spots, the most scenic hiking trails, the most challenging kayak routes there's lots to do and this book shows when and where, with contact names and numbers outfitters, as well as tips on going solo. Maps. Photos. Penisten is a lively guide with a polished style and ability to focus on family-oriented places to visit. He helps you explore Hawaii, not just visit! You'll bike down a volcano, snorkel or scuba in an underwater cave, follow a trail through a rain forest and fish for Pacific blue marlin, all before breaking for lunch with your literate host. If you're planning to be in the islands as a guest or a resident, you'll want this book at your side. -- Outside Magazine. Directs you away from the theme parks and into the great outdoors... the information on trekking routes, canoeing, wildlife refuges - even golf courses - is well researched. -- The Sunday Telegraph. If you like to hike, swim, snorkel, mountain bike, or pursue another active hobby while traveling, you will probably find this book a valuable guide for the Hawaiian islands. It is an overall guide, and I think you will probably also benefit by supplementing this book with a specific guidebook oriented towards the island(s) you are spending most of your time on. Avid snorkelers (I am one) will also benefit from the Malinowski series on snorkeling in specific islands in Hawaii. The best feature of the book is a list of the top ten adventures on each island. Useful for penetrating the immense amount of information to identify the most unusual or spectacular attractions on each island. -- M. Broderick (Amazon)
