Widely considered the definitive study of archaeological and historical sites of O'ahu. Includes material reprinted from the 1920s and 1930s, myths and legends associated with natural landmarks and traditional sites, extracts from early newspaper articles, and previously unpublished information collected from interviews. The material in this compilation has been divided into six sections, covering the seven districts of Oahu in the following order: Ewa, Waianae, Waialua, Wahiawa, Koolauloa, Koolaupoko, and Kona. Each district, in turn, has been divided into its various ahupua'a. The ahupua'a are arranged as they are found geographically in the district, as are the sites and the additional information. A map is included near the end of each district showing the locations of sites and place names whenever possible.
