Miracle in the Pacific : The Polynesian Cultural Center
Salt Lake City, UT
Twirling knives of fire, coconut tree climbing, steamed pork fresh from the imu, and dancers as graceful and hypnotic as the ocean waves are all just small parts woven into the intricate tapestry that makes up the Polynesian Cultural Center. From its humble beginnings in 1963 as a way to preserve the many Polynesian cultures and provide employment opportunities for university students living in La'ie, the PCC has grown to be one of the top paid attractions in the islands today.
As a stunning, photo-rich volume commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the Center in 2013, Miracle in the Pacific is a luau for the eyes. This beautiful keepsake book celebrates the Center's remarkable history and its inspired mission to preserve the best of Polynesia. It shares stories about the vision and determination that has made the Polynesian Cultural Center not only a world-renowned tourist experience but also perhaps the most famous example of the Hawaiian spirit of aloha.
