Growing up as one of 13 children in the tiny sugar plantation camp of Kipu, on the island of Kauai in the 1930s and 1940s, always felt like a grand adventure to Harry Yamanaka. In this collection of his short stories, you will join Harry as he catches frogs to help feed his many siblings; makes his own fishing canoe using corrugated iron roofing; walks along a mile-long road at night with the ghost of Felix, and more. Harrys memories of his childhood are humorous, sweet and insightful. He also writes with love and respect about his parents, who immigrated individually from Japan, met on Kauai, fell in love, and together raised their large family on his fathers salary of $35 per month. When you have finished reading Kauai . . . in my heart, Kauai will be in your heart, too.
