Sam and Mary Cooke have assembled at Kualii, their Manoa Valley home, a cultural treasure unsurpassed by any other private collection in the islands. This collection of paintings, drawings, and prints of the Hawaiian Islands uniquely reflects the kamaaina appreciation the Cookes have for various locales throughout the islands, including generations-long associations with people and places, and a love of legends and history. In this book, historian and bibliographer David W. Forbes presents a selection of the collection's finest works.
