The Kaua`i Museum will host a book signing by author, Frederick B.Wichman, on Saturday, June 28, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the main gallery of the Albert Spencer Wilcox Memorial building.
His newest book “Na Pua Ali`i O Kaua`i” (Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii) presents the stories of the men and women who ruled the island of Kaua`i from its first settlement to the final rebellion against Kamehameha Is forces.
According to Wichman, only fragments remain of the nearly 2,000 year history of the people who inhabited Kaua`i before the coming of James Cook in 1778. “This book chronicles the legends of great voyages, bitter wars, courageous heroes, and passionate romances,” he says.
Other books by Wichman include “Kaua`i Tales,” “Polihale,” “Pele M,” “More Kaua`i Tales”, and “Kaua`i: Ancient Place-Names and Their Stories.”
