Hawai'i | Field Guide

Regular price$ 20.00

There’s a distinctive air of mystique that remains in Hawai‘i, even if elusive, and it stirs in the local who celebrate their profound ancestry on these sacred shores. Wildsam worked closely with local writers, editors, musicians, artists, activists, ecologists and cultural authorities, in hopes of sharing a broad and beautiful perspective on Hawai‘i, past and present.

“Certain waves have a mythical status. Jaws is one of them. In Hawaiian, it’s called Pe‘ahi, which means ‘to beckon.’ And when you show up, you feel like someone is watching you: a ghost.”
