This book was very good but also very sad.

This is from the Epilogue, Page 212;

"...on August 12,1898, Hawaii was finally and officially annexed to the United States. The Hawaiian national anthem was played for the final time, and then the Hawaiian flag was removed from its proud spot atop Iolani Palace, with the American flag raised in its place.
Hawaii would never be independent again, and all of her people wept that day."
