This isn't the best written book, but it is very informative and well researched. Dougherty details the contacts that Hawaiians had with Western explorers, Businessmen, missionaries and others between James Cook in 1769, and the early 20th century. Herman Melville and Mark Twain both make appearances.
Just one quick fact; estimates indicate that 400,000 (or more) Native Hawaiians were living on the major Hawaiian islands when Cook landed in Hawai'i. Due to the influx of disease, etc, the population dropped to about 40,000 within 100 years. ( )
