Sketches Of Life In The Hawaiian Islands
Laura Fish Judd
Originally published in 1861 this edition has addons from the 1880 and 1918 editions. Laura Fish Judd, wife of Dr. Gerrit Judd, arrived in the Hawaiian Islands in the 3rd missionary company. Gerrit Judd was more and more involved in advising the government of the fledgling Kingdom of Hawaii and later was enlisted by the government in various high positions. This book written by her is compiled from journals, letters and personal insights into an intimate insider view of the workings of that government and the ongoing missionary effort that led to the transforming of that nation and people. It is an incredible detailed record into the development of the Hawaiian government from 1828 to 1861. This later edition also contains footnotes by their son, Albert Francis Judd, and details from 1861-1880.
