Description
You might find your neighbor in this book. Or your childhood hula teacher. Or the farmer who grows your vegetables, the man at your favorite chili counter, the artist who weaved your lauhala mat.

Modest, resilient, resourceful, sometimes struggling and always extraordinary, the cultural treasures and small family businesses have built our neighborhoods and defined Hawai'i through several generations. They are the face of 21st-century Hawai'i, the aloha behind the glamor. Whether visitor or resident, you'll find their stories heroic, enriching, enlightening and inspiring.
