Summary
A departure from London's normal tales of the frozen North, all of these tales take place in the islands of Hawaii. The tales deal with racial issues, family relationships, leprosy quarantines, missionaries, and the diverse people who make their homes on the beautiful Hawaiian islands. London traveled to Hawaii in the late 1800s and early 1900s, including an eight-month stay shortly before he died in 1916. He had a fondness for the islands that is apparent in the rich descriptions in these tales. Short Stories in this Collection: "The House of Pride" "Koolau the Leper" "Good-bye, Jack" "Aloha Oe" "Chun Ah Chun" "The Sheriff of Kona"
