This series of historical maps of Hawaii focuses on the time of rediscovery by Captain James Cook. The same spirit of adventure that propelled the original migrants to Hawaii was never more evident than during this time. For this reason, I have chosen this volatile and pivotal point in the history of these two dynamic and disparate cultures.
Because of my sensitivity to the Hawaiian people their culture, great care was taken in researching each island. I have attempted to balance the natural beauty of the Islands, Hawaiian culture, and important historical events.
Each map took at least a year to complete and would have taken longer if not for the State of Hawaii Library, the University of Hawaii, Bishop Museum, and the Hawaii Natural History Assoc., their archives and key advisers. Each map includes cartographer's notes.
