If ever there were an expert in the history, beauty, and overall best places to visit in Hawaii, Craig E. Burgess would be that person. His first visit to the islands was in 1974, the first of forty-one in total!
Providing a glimpse of Hawaiian culture, history, music, art, and daily lifestyles to the reader, A Fleeting Glimpse of Paradise was inspired by Craig’s time spent with special residents of Hawaii who shared a special “Spirit of Aloha” during his forty-one visits to the islands. His hope is that during your visit, you spend time with local residents of the islands and “talk story” with them, rather than simply going there for an “Aloha” shirt, flower lei, or some other souvenir.
This beautiful collection of anecdotes, inspired poems, and special stories you can’t get from travel books encourages readers to find ways to conserve the natural beauty of the islands-and to make the very best of their experience in this magical utopia.
