While she visited her lands at Lawai, Kauai on several occasions, it was not until after the death of her husband and her only child that she spent a substantial amount of time here. This delightful, historical account of her extended stay at Lawai, much of it in her own words, will interest both historians and the general reader interested in Hawaii. There is a delightful description of her journey, with a retinue of 100 people, across the Alakai Swamp of Kauai.
