by Lynn Ann Davis
Publisher's Description
Hedemann, a Danish engineer, arrived in Hawai'i in 1878 to direct the modernization of the sugar plantation at Hana, Maui. Eager to produce photographs of his new surroundings for his relatives at home, Hedemann embarked on a study of this remote Hawaiian village. The result is an intimate portrait of the native and immigrant communities in Hana, and a new perspective on the early industrialization of the Hawaiian islands.
