5. “Ancient Sites of Oahu, Revised Edition”
by Van James
Bishop Museum Press, 160 pp., $14.95

A fully updated edition of the award-winning guidebook, which, upon its publication in the early 1990s, raised awareness about Oahu’s culturally significant ancient sites. Besides additional sites not included in the previous edition, this revised, full-color edition of Ancient Sites also includes expanded descriptions highlighting the features, legends and archaeology of more than 50 Oahu sites. Organized for readers interested in actually finding the sites, the book separates sites by Oahu regions and includes directions, maps and photos. Other chapters describe facets of Hawaiian culture and types of Hawaiian sites—from heiau (temples), cave and rock shelters to petroglyphs, pohaku (sacred stones) and fishponds.
