''This collection of photographs, drawn from archival sources, is a record of,
and a tribute to, the Hawaiian people and the lives they led as their world changed around them.
The names of the photographers may be familiar--R.J. Baker, Davey, Montano, Theodore Kelsey--
but the people they photographed were largely lost to history. Since most of the subjects of these portraits
were poor, rural folk or tourist-industry workers, they are not to be found in the history books
or the narratives of island visitors. And unlike the much-publicized members of
the former monarchy, the Hawaiians portrayed here are those who have survived only in
the memories of their families and the Hawaiian community. This book brings them out
from the background. For far from being mere props or symbols, these are the people
and the culture which has made Hawaii a legend.''
