"I trained for eighteen months, traveled to ten countries, met the canoe in fifteen ports and sailed on five different occasions including a 1000 mile blue-water leg from Panama to The Galapagos. The imagery has been the focus of my career for the last four years and the book has finally gone to press. Beautifully written by Jennifer Allen, we hoped to tell the story and show the magic of Hokule'a as she undertook the most important journey ever."     - jb

From the launch in Hawai‘i in May 2014, around the world to Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and North and South America, this beautiful hardcover book chronicles Hōkūleʻa’s epic mission to raise awareness of and nurture worldwide sustainability. Interwoven with descriptions of Hōkūleʻa’s experiences in port are the voices of the master navigators and crew members, who guide the ship along the ocean’s trackless path, and the local pioneers -- scientists, teachers, and children touched by Hōkūleʻa – who work tirelessly to weather the many environmental challenges in our modern lives. This is a story about our need to draw together into one global community. By respecting one another and nature’s delicate and intricate systems, this book captures the many ways indigenous cultures are committed to living in ecological balance.
