Author’s Note

In all my travels, the Big Island of Hawai‘i is the most diverse place I’ve ever seen. This island literally has it all. Where else can you drive up to a snow-capped mountain of nearly 14,000 feet, then cruise down to a heavenly beach and snorkel in warm waters on an 85°F day? Exotic rain forests, stark lava deserts, crystal clear waters packed with fish, an erupting volcano, old Hawai‘i towns and modern out-of-this-world resorts. Swim with dolphins, hike around smoldering craters, luxuriate in decadent spas or roll around on a black or even green sand beach. I can—and do—go on and on. Live your dreams during your Big Island trip.

What Readers Have to Say

“Bought your book at the Puakó General Store as we’re renting a house there. Your book is one of the few that I’ve seen that tells you what to avoid, as well as what to embrace. I can’t tell you how helpful that is. Honesty!!!”
