Shoal of Time a History of the Hawaiian IslandsShoal of Time a History of the Hawaiian Islands by Gavan Daws
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Shoal is the history of the Kings of Hawaii from Kamehameha 1 to the end of the monarchy in the late 1900s. The story is true, but the events are incredible and compelling. How the Hawaiian Islands were discovered and eventually subverted by the US and the European powers makes for great storytelling.
