Kapoho: Memoir of a Modern Pompeii Product Description:

Once there was a Kapoho... From a wartime drama of "The Enemy Wore My Face" to the sweet poignancy of "A One Chopstick Marriage", Frances H. Kakugawa weaves a coming-of-age memoir of life in a Hawaiian plantation village - now buried beneath a blanket of lava.

Author Charles Pellegrino calls it "a rare poetic history that will make you think, laugh and cry".
