Summary
This work sheds new light on the relationship between environment and society by charting the history of Hawaii's Molokai island over a thousand-year period of repeated settlement. From the arrival of the first Polynesians to contact with eighteenth-century European explorers and traders to our present era, this text shows how the control of resources - especially water - in a fragile, highly variable environment has had profound effects on the history of Hawaii.
