Book V of the Hawaiian Language Reprint Series Ke Kupu Hou
For the first time since 1906, Kelekona's book is reprinted in its entirety in Hawaiian. Kelekona writes the personal narrative of Piilani, a devoted wife of Kaluaikoolau and mother to their young son, Kaleimanu. They struggle to escape the edict that would banish Koolau and Kaleimanu to Kalaupapa and devastate their family. The three seek saftey and solace, even happiness, in the steep mountain forests of Kalalaau, Kauai.
