New releases from Hawaii authors
"Hidden Oahu, 5th Edition"
By Ray Riegert
As a young travel writer, Ray Riegert came up with the idea of "Hidden Hawaii" when he noticed that none of the travel guides to Hawaii described the beaches. As publisher of Ulysses Press in Berkeley, Calif., he has updated this classic travel guide for the fifth time, including new details on the Koolaupoko Trail, Iolani Palace and Ke Iki beach bungalows.
"Surfing and the Meaning of Life"
By Ben Marcus and Jeff Divine
Ben Marcus served for 10 years as associate editor at the Surfer Magazine, and now writes for Surfer's Journal and other like publications. Jeff Divine is a well-known surfing photographer and is the current photo editor at the Surfer's Journal. Both have contributed their talents to this small-format, full-color, hardcover photo book. A must for anyone who loves riding the waves.
