This classic of Hawaiian literature offers a charming glimpse at the splendid and fascinating world of preAmerican Hawaii.Isabella Lucy Bird won fame in her own time as the most remarkable woman traveler of the nineteenth century, and Six Months in the Sandwich Isles, in which she describes her sojourn in Hawaii in 1873, is one of the gems of Pacific literature. It is safe to say that no other book about Hawaii surpasses it in fascination. Much of the charm of Isabella’s writing is due to her use of personal letters for conveying her her experiences and her impressions. The thirtyone letters that compose the book were written to her beloved sister Henrietta, who dutifully stayed at home in Edinburgh to take care of the household while Isabella was away on her travels.The book is an authentic record of daily life in Hawaii in the late nineteenth century. It describes a life style during the brief reign of King Lunalilo, not too may years before the sad reign of Queen Liliuokalani ended her dethronement by revolution. Isabella Bird met royalty, missionaries, cowboys, and ordinary, everyday Hawaiians. It is fortunate that she left such a vivid narrative of her Hawaiian Interlude.

Acerca de Isabella L. Bird
Born in Yorkshire in 1831, Isabella Bird was an odd bird herself. An outdoorswoman, she chafed at the restrictions posed by her class and sex, and saw writing accounts of her travel experiences as an opportunity to escape a stifling town life for the open road. At the age of twenty-two, while most Victorian women were settling into marriage, Bird embarked on her first trip for the purpose of writing a travelogue. Her travels through Canada and the United States led to her book, An Englishwoman in America, published in 1856. The travel bug had bit.Undeterred by unchartered territory and political uprisings, Bird ventured every which direction, resulting in such books as The Hawaiian Archipelago and Unbeaten Tracks in Japan. When she married her long time friend, Dr. John Bishop, it was under the stipulation that she would still travel on her own. Her last journey was in October 1904, before dying from an inoperable tumor.
