The Spell of the Hawaiian Islands and the Philippines


Read by William Tomcho

(4.6 stars; 15 reviews)

Isabel Anderson has written a most interesting travelogue of Hawaii and The Philippines. Actually it is more of a history lesson. Anyone with any interest whatsoever in the South Pacific will find this book very interesting indeed, to note all that has changed since Mrs. Anderson had traveled there.

Extremely interesting history, and good reader. Highly recommended. The author was an amazing woman, who went in to serve in WW1 after writing this.
