Who made Big Island history? Events make history, but it is the people who produce these events that are the real history-makers. To understand Big Island history is to appreciate those whose lives and deeds have shaped events. Originally published as Hawaiʻi Island Leaders in 1990, this edited reprint conveniently summarizes the history of the Big Island of Hawaiʻi by focusing on the lives of these real people the Polynesians, explorers, western adventurers, royalty, and missionaries.
