Kalaupapa National Historical Park and the Legacy of Father Damien
A condensed, pictorial history of leprosy in Hawaii, from its introduction in the early 1800's, through its effects on the people whose lives were shaped by it, to the establishment of Kalaupapa as a National Historical Park.
Compiled, written, and edited by Richard A. Wisniewski, a graduate of the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee, and a writer of Hawaiiana and the vice president of Pacific Basin Enterprises, the publisher of this book. Some of his other works include "Hawaiian Monarchs and Their Palaces," "The Rise and Fall of the Hawaiian Kingdom," "Hawaii: The Territorial Years, 1900-1959," and "Pearl Harbor and the USS Arizona Memorial: A Pictorial History."
Recognizing the need for a factual, nonsensational yet concise and affordable book on the history of leprosy in Hawaii, this author has combined his expertise in Hawaiiana to produce "Kalaupapa National Historical Park and the Legacy of Father Damien (A Pictorial History)."
