    I received this book as a gift from a friend who had gone back to Hawaii to visit her family It was a pleasant surprise to find this book among others in the box she'd sent me as I didn't realize Jack London wrote a collection of short stories about Hawaii All said I liked the various points of view depicted in the short stories They are told from a myriad of perspectives that range from the Hawaiians all the way to the hodgepodge of races that migrated to the islands A few stories even included the leper colony that once resided on Molokai I had some favorite passages from the section entitled From My Hawaiian Aloha As a reader and former resident of Hawaii this short essay was a great way to end the book as it mirrored my own sentiments about the place Otherwise it was with Mark Twain who wrote of Hawaii long after his visit 'No alien land in all the world has any deep strong charm for me but that one; no other land so longingly and so beseechingly haunt me sleeping and waking through half a lifetime as that one has done Other things leave me but it abides; other things change but it remains the same For me its balmy airs are always blowing its summer seas flashing in the sun; the pulsing of its surf beat is in my ears; I can see its garlanded crags its leaping cascades its plumy palms drowsing by the shore its remote spirit of its woodland solitudes; I can hear the splash of its brooks; in my nostrils still lives the breath of flowers that perished twenty years ago But to return Hawaii is the home of shanghaied men and women who were induced to remain not by a blow with a club over the head or a doped bottle of whiskey but by love Hawaii and the Hawaiians are a land and a people loving and lovable By their language may ye know them and in what other land save this one is the commonest form of greeting not Good day nor How d'ye do but Love? That greeting is Aloha love I love you my love to you Good day what is it than an impersonal remark about the weather? How do you do it is personal in a merely casual interrogative sort of way But Aloha It is a positive affirmation of the warmth of one's own heart giving My love to you I love you AlohaWhen Hawaii was named the Paradise of the Pacific it was inadeuately named The rest of the Seven Seas and the islands in the midst thereof should have been included along with Pacific 'See Naples and die' they spell it differently here See Hawaii and live

    Unlike the other book in this two book ring Nordic Nights which I couldn't get into I enjoyed this one very much I've never been to Hawaii but definitely want to go after reading this collection I enjoyed the stories and the glimpse back in time that they provided Jack London is an excellent author of course and does a fantastic job of capturing what must be the essence of Hawaii at that time My favorite piece though was the non fiction essay about surfing or surf riding as London calls it I did a little bit of surfing myself in Southern California so this really struck a chord with me All in all a beautiful book


  3. Beth Cato Beth Cato says:

    The good I needed information on turn of the 20th century Hawaii and London's lush descriptions caused me to make many notes The bad overall the content of these stories struck me as dreadfully dull and it made for a slow torturous read I often read nonfiction faster than this The character development dragged and many stories resolved around the theme of affairs or similar interpersonal drama plus a fixation on leprosy I loved the actual details about Hawaii its history and its water; it's easy to see that London fell in love with the islands


  4. Gary Lewis Gary Lewis says:

    But to return Hawaii is the home of shanghaied men and women who were induced to remain not by a blow with a club over the head or a doped bottle of whiskey but by love Hawaii and the Hawaiians are a land and a people loving and lovable By their language may ye know them and in what other land save this one is the commonest form of greeting not Good day nor How d'ye do but Love? That greeting is Aloha love I love you my love to you Good day what is it than an impersonal remark about the weather? How do you do it is personal in a merely casual interrogative sort of way But Aloha It is a positive affirmation of the warmth of one's own heart giving My love to you I love you Aloha


  5. Debra Waites Debra Waites says:

    I read “Call of the Wild” and “White Fang” as a child in school I began reading Jack London’s other books as an adult in my 50’s and wondered why I had the impression that he wrote juvenile literature This set of short stories in this volume are set in Hawai’i and that is where I read them when visiting that large Big Island Thoroughly enjoyed each story and since I had been doing some reading on Hawaiian history could appreciate that his stories represented the reality of these islands and their inhabitants Not children’s literature; merely good literature well worth reading


  6. Artnoose McMoose Artnoose McMoose says:

    I had no idea about Jack London’s time spent in Hawaii and how he wrote a lot of his works while living there It has some of the sexism and racism that you’d expect for a haole of that era but he does seem to really love Hawaii Some if not many of the stories are based on actual events including the stories about leprosy One valuable thing about this collection of short stories is what it captures about a certain time period in Hawaii


  7. Jacob Lehman Jacob Lehman says:

    Racist in places but London's appreciation for the physicality of Hawai'i and its diversity is palpable I love his singular bluntness of world view and as in the Sea Wolf his attitude towards surfing is what man has done I can do


  8. Quinn Quinn says:

    The good London is a wonderful writer with great storiesThe bad You'll really want to go to Hawaii after the read


  9. Christy Christy says:

    Enjoyable I had no idea he'd lived in Hawaii I loved the feel of so many of these tales though in agreement with the Hawaiians I wish he hadn't focused UITE so much on leprosy


  10. Talia Talia says:

    Somewhat goodI still think James Michener's Hawaii is my favorite fiction about island life that I have read so far The themes in these stories seemed a little overplayed the unapologetic leper the crafty Chinese businessman the native Hawaiian woman who married a haole and got no lovePerhaps these themes were novel when Jack London published them? My favorite short stories from the seris Koolau the Leper definitely the best and you can read it online here and Water BabyNice descriptive seuences throughout like these excerpts from Koolau the LeperWe know We have it from our fathers and our fathers' fathers They came like lambs speaking softly Well might they speak softly for we were many and strong and all the islands were ours As I say they spoke softly They were of two kinds The one kind asked our permission our gracious permission to preach to us the word of God The other kind asked our permission our gracious permission to trade with us That was the beginning Today all the islands are theirs all the land all the cattle everything is theirsThey sat flower garlanded in the perfumed luminous night and their lips made uncouth noises and their throats rasped approval of Koolau's speech They were creatures who once had been men and women But they were men and women no longer They were monsters in face and form grotesue caricatures of everything human They were hideously maimed and distorted and had the seeming of creatures that had been racked in millenniums of hell Their hands when they possessed them were like harpy claws Their faces were the misfits and slips crushed and bruised by some mad god at play in the machinery of life Here and there were features which the mad god had smeared half away and one woman wept scalding tears from twin pits of horror where her eyes once had beenAnd over these things Koolau was king And this was his kingdom a flower throttled gorge with beetling cliffs and crags from which floated the blattings of wild goats On three sides the grim walls rose festooned in fantastic draperies of tropic vegetation and pierced by cave entrances the rocky lairs of Koolau's subjects On the fourth side the earth fell away into a tremendous abyss and far below could be seen the summits of lesser peaks and crags at whose bases foamed and rumbled the Pacific surge In fine weather a boat could land on the rocky beach that marked the entrance of Kalalau Valley but the weather must be very fine
