Read full description of the books Six Months in the Sandwich Islands: Among Hawaii's Palm Groves, Coral Reefs and Volcanoes:

Isabella, Isabella, who would have thought? You beat us hands down - in your long skirts and in your early 40's - what an intrepid traveler you were! So enthusiastic, especially about volcanoes (letting the soles of your shoes melt like that, really! and your early morning worship at the altar of lava - you would do anything, wouldn't you, to experience these thrills!). I loved this book. The trip on horseback from Hilo through the gorges to Waipio was incredible, and the description of entering the harbour at Hilo - what I would do to have seen that beauty! What a paradise! Isabella is lavish with her descriptions, and had obviously fallen in love with the generous hospitality of the Hawaiians - this is back when there was only one hotel in Honolulu, and none in Hilo (the locals would greet the boat from Oahu and take home it's passengers as guests!). Also the attitude of the people towards the lepers living among them was very striking. This book is well worth reading for several reasons - for her descriptions, for her grit and adventurousness, for the almost unbelievable Hawaiian way of life that she records. I am no ends curious about her other travels and will be reading more for sure.
