Description
With the author's own color photos, paintings, and drawings, as well as archival photos, field biologist Mark Rauzon tours the northwestern Hawaiian Islands, a string of rocks, atolls, and small sandy islands, stretching more than 1,000 miles from the eight main islands of Hawaii. Rauzon shares his extensive firsthand knowledge of the archipelago's natural history and inhabitants—including rare palms, sharks, turtles, seals, finches, terns, petrels, boobies, ducks, and albatrosses—while his engaging and personal narrative also describes his own island-hopping adventures and the small yet vital role in human history played by these island-atolls.

"While Rauzon, a biologist, packs the book with lots of scholarly information, his lyrical writing style, keen observation and adept story-telling will capture readers. His clear photography and beautiful illustrations are a bonus.... At times the book reads like outdoor adventure, with whimsical details that bring the stories to life.... [Rauzon] layers straight history with legends, diaries with documents, old discoveries with new, blending it all in a deft package."—Honolulu Star-Bulletin
