Imagine having a hip, in-the-know friend in every city you wanted to visit. And imagine that he's excited when you say, "hey, I'm going to be in town for a few days; anything I shouldn't miss?" So excited, in fact, that he riffs for 145 entire pages about secret spots, local intel, insider trivia, and hot tips that you'd never have known otherwise. Anyway, that's kind of what a Wildsam Field Guide feels like. The Hawai'i edition is in partnership with OluKai, a Hawai'an sandal company, and it includes:
A curated selection of beaches, public lands, hotels, island experts and more. Interviews with surfers, artists, musicians, anthropologists, ecologists, chefs, ranchers, native lands advocates and more. Travel profiles of each island, with essential experiences and intel. Archival excerpts about tropical flora, legendary watermen, Pearl Harbor, Hula, Elvis Presley, Eddie Aikau, shipwrecks, pineapples and more, Insights for thoughtful travel, including tourism etiquette, language, cultural identity, critical civic issues facing Hawai'i. And all the Wildsam picks for dozens of island favorites including poke bowls, beginner surf breaks, whale watching, waterfall hikes, Polynesia art, Waikiki music, backroad drives, historic golf courses and more.
