What Readers Have to Say

“I don’t normally write these sorts of letters (I often intend to, but I usually never get around to it!) but I just had to say how much I appreciated your guidebook on the Big Island. My book is bedraggled and looks as if I’ve been studying for final exams (bookmarks and notes abound!). Also, it’s noteworthy that all the locals who saw my book commented on what a great book it is…you either have a lot of friends in Kona or word has gotten around that your guidebook on the Big Island is the best!”
