Kaipo Schwab narrates this history of Hawaii from the late eighteenth century, when it was discovered by Captain Cook, to the late nineteenth century, when it was annexed by the United States. Schwab is from Honolulu, and it shows in his reading of the Hawaiian words and names that pepper the text. His melodic voice is even and precise throughout, providing a solid foundation for Susanna Moore's eloquent text. However, his careful pacing is not accompanied by changes in tone or volume for the historical stories of Hawaii's native people. Overall, however, Schwab delivers an appealing reading.
