About the author:
Hiram Bingham I
1789-1869

Hiram Bingham, a missionary from New England and his wife Sybil (Moseley) Bingham were among the very first Christian missionaries to the Hawaiian Islands. They arrived in 1820 shortly after the death of King Kamehameha I. The Bingham's remained in the islands for twenty-one years. Bingham was involved in the creation of a written language for the native Hawaiians and helped start many schools in the islands. He became fluent in the native Hawaiian language. His intimate knowledge of the transformation of the Hawaiian people, culture and government during the twenty-one years he was there makes him well qualified to describe the history of those years as well as events and history preceding their arrival.

Residence Of Twenty-One Years In The Sandwich Islands
 

Authored by Hiram Bingham I

Text originally published in 1847. Missionary life and labors in Hawaii (1820-1841) with detailed descriptions of revival, Hawaii's land and people in the 1800's. Hiram Bingham was among the first Christian Missionaries to the Kingdom of Hawaii and knew very well the kings and rulers of that country. This lengthy volume contains meticulous and vivid descriptions and accounts of the transformation of the people of the Hawaiian Islands and is separated into yearly chapters relating also to the current ruler of that year. Although quite long, a person reading this book will find themselves quite familiar with the daily lives and culture of both the early missionaries and the year by year history of the kingdom of Hawaii during which it was transformed from a primitive society to a civilized and organized country.
