Hawaii -- the Pacific Paradise

Explore Hawaii -- it's people, culture and fascinating past. "Paradise Sought, Vol I" is the story of the Polynesians through the end of the Hawaiian Monarchy. "Paradise Found, Vol II" carries through to today's Hawaii. Pearl Harbor, Waikiki -- all the islands! Aloha!

VHS -- 120 min -- 2 Vol ..... $34.95



PARADISE SOUGHT, Vol I -- They loaded their double hulled canoes with tools, food and the necessities to cross the Pacific to start a new life on the "other shore". A thousand years before Columbus set sail to the New World, Polynesian sailors and their families left their homes to search for a land free of strife, hunger and persecution.

What they found was a paradise free of predators and lethal germs of any kinds. These passionate and beautiful people of Polynesia had arrived at Hawaii.

From Kamehameha the Great, to Captain Cook, to American sugar planters, this, then, is the story of a Paradise Sought.



PARADISE FOUND, Vol II -- In the 19th and 20th centuries, paradise wilted under the onslaught of western ideas, diseases and greed. Yet, among scoundrels and exploiters, emerged a saint in Father Damien, heroes like the Hawaiian-Japanese soldiers of WWII, and an Olympic champion in Duke Kahanamoku. America brought new industry, new riches, and increasing prosperity to the islands. Japanese, Chinese, Koreans and Filipinos came to get their share.

The thundering attack on Pearl harbor on December 7, 1941, was devastating, but America fought back and with military might controlled the Pacific. After WWI, this tropical Shangri-La for the wealthy became every man's playground. Hawaii struggled to protect its beauty.

Today Hawaiians are rediscovering their Polynesian roots. This is the story of Hawaii, a Paradise Found ..... lost and now being reborn.

"Good combination of history, culture, and sightseeing... highly recommended."
