Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0978630505, Hardcover)

Haleiwa is a place in time. Visitors to this picturesque one-hundred-year-old plantation town are almost always struck by the charm of its comfortable storefront buildings, the easygoing pace of its residents, and the town s friendly aloha spirit. This book captures that spirit. It traces Haleiwa all the way from the thatched-hut roots of the original Polynesian settlers, through the early years of the Hawaiian kingdom, into the fields of Waialua Sugar Plantation, into the elegant drawing rooms of the Haleiwa Hotel, right up to the emergence of Haleiwa Town as today s surfing capital of Hawaii ... arguably the worlds surf city. This story is told with photos that are, in some cases, over one hundred years old. Alongside these historic photos, brilliant state-of-the-art color photography brings present-day Haleiwa and the North Shore of Oahu to vibrant life. The authors have tried hard to capture the sight and feel of a town and an area that represents country to the people of Oahu. Haleiwa is a town that is truly a place in time.
