Hawaiian Cowboys: A Photographic Journal
By Michal McClure
Hawaiian cowboys have ridden the misty mountain rainforests, high plains, and rugged volcanic slopes of remote Hawaii for more than 175 years. In that time, they have adapted the practices of mainland cowboys to the unique conditions of the islands - from swimming cattle to boats to dodging lava tubes. This vivid and touching photographic glimpse into the lives of Hawaii's cowboys captures the essence of their rich history and unique way of life. It provides good insight into the lifestyle of the paniolo (cowboy), highlighting their tight family ties, spiritual connection and practices, and social interaction and festivals that celebrate what it means to be a Hawaiian Cowboy.
