Joseph Bryant Hawkes Journal of His Mission to the Hawaiian Islands 1890-1893
John E. Kent
This book is about an LDS missionary who goes to the Sandwich Islands on a 3 year mission from 1890 to 1893. He is there at a critical time in Hawaiian history. The King had just past away and the Queen became the monarch. She would only rule for a few years before being dethroned and a Provisional Government would take her place. It tells of his missionary efforts on the different islands and how kind the people of Hawaii were to him. It also tells of what a wonderful Queen the Hawaiian people had. Through 2 other missionaries journals, newspaper clips and photographs this book unfolds into some great Hawaiian history. Thank You. John E. Kent.
