Kalaupapa: A Portrait (Bishop Museum Special Publication Number 91)
by Wayne Levin
Publisher's Description
"The photographs in this book illustrate the end of an era and a triumph of human ingenuity and spirit. The abandoned buildings and overgrown grounds of the Kalaupapa Settlement bear witness to a time, now over, when people afflicted with leprosy were separated from society and forced to live in isolation. More eloquent than words, the photographs give evidence that today leprosy is curable and that isolating patients as a means of treating the disease is a thing of the past."--the publisher.
