The song and the islands will be forever etched in their memories.This book chronicles Hawaiis first major hit song outside of the islands. Composed in 1878 as a love song by the woman who would become Hawaiis only ruling queen, the song made its debut in 1883 in San Francisco.

Since then, Aloha Oe has become famous around the world largely through the efforts of Bandmaster Henry Berger, conducting thousands of concerts. Over the years, it has been immortalized in other songs, literature, plays, and movies.

With each new medium, Aloha Oe remains an enduring favorite with its unforgettable melody.About the AuthorLeslie Ann Hayashi is an award winning judge and writer.
