In this book, the author ties personal memories to newly procured political information about Hawaiʻi's crucial territorial era. Spurred by questions surrounding intergenerational property disputes in her immediate family, she delves into Hawaiʻi's historical archives. There she discovers the central role played by her great-great-grandfather in the politics of late nineteenth- and early twentieth century Hawaiʻi -- in particular, Curtis P. Iaukea's trusted position with the Hawaiian Kingdom's last ruling monarch, Queen Liliuokalani.
