Almost ninety percent of Hawai'i's native plants are found nowhere else in the world. Here is a revised and enlarged edition of a favorite reference for these and other plants (indigenous and pre-contact) that comprise some of the world's most unique ecosystems. In a series of essays, the author weaves cultural and biological, historical and geographic, aesthetic and spiritual aspects of Hawaiian ecology into non-technical accounts of 32 plants important to early Hawaiians. The plants range from the delicate 'iwa'iwa fern to the intoxicating 'awa, to the kalo, which formed the heart of the traditional Hawaiian diet.
