LORD OF THE HAAO RAIN
PRINTED IN A LIMITED FIRST EDITION
OF 250 SIGNED & NUMBERED COPIES

Anyone with an interest in Hawaii’s ancient history, traditions, ruling families and religion needs to read this book.

Lord of the Haao Rain addresses the hundred-year-old mystery of a tomb with fabulous Hawaiian ethnographic riches discovered in 1905 called Forbes Cave. This treasure was sealed back in the cave in 2000, recovered in 2006, only to be  sealed away again in restricted museum storage where it has languished for over a decade without resolution.

Filled with haunting photographs of the contents of Forbes Cave taken in the early 1900s, this book tells the little-known story of the lives and tragic deaths of the twin brothers Keoua who were cousins to King Kamehameha. It also takes a fascinating look at the contents of the cave that is believed to be their burial tomb.
