Synopsis

Incredible as it might seem, Hawaii is like a gigantic raft, drifting slowly with the centuries. According to the latest theory, the vast Pacific plate on which Hawaii sits glides over the earth's semi fluid under-crust, and as this plate passes over a hot lava vent, new islands are formed. The upper end of this giant plate moves under Japan and other parts of Asia, causing recurrent earthquakes.

This book is the fruit of collaboration between author anthropologist Terence Barrow and artist-illustration Ray Lanterman. It is a worthy successor to their Incredible Hawaii published by the Charles E. Tuttle Company in 1974. The first book was received with enthusiasm by tourists, residents, and school readers of various grades. Teachers said it enlivened Hawaiian history. The fifty-two illustrated essays of More Incredible Hawaii are even more fascinating than the first series. The convenient format chosen by the publisher is again that of the standard Tuttle Book noted for high quality paper and presentation. More Incredible Hawaii is an admirable companion to Incredible Hawaii and should receive the same enthusiastic reception.
