Adventure


In fiction, the adventurer figure or Picaro may be regarded as a descendant of the knight-errant of Medieval romance. Like the knight, the adventurer roams through episodic encounters, usually involving wealth, romance, or fighting. Unlike the knight, the adventurer was a realistic figure, often lower class or otherwise impoverished, who is forced to make his way to fortune, often by deceit. Also, an adventurer is a roguish hero of low social class who lives by his or her wits in a corrupt society.

The following collection of archival and oral historical-consultation records pertaining to Waikamoi Preserve and the greater watershed of the Haleakala mountain lands on the island of Maui, was compiled by Kumu Pono Associates LLC, at the request of The Nature Conservancy-Hawaii.

1848, Kamehameha III granted fee-simple interest of Kalialinui to a chiefly steward, Kamaikaaloa (Kamaikaaloa), who held the land through the remainder of his lifetime, and subsequently conveyed it to his heirs. Kalalawalu—daughter of Kamaikaaloa and Kealohaaukai—and her husband, Douglas Panee, sold the land of Kalialinui to Haleakala Ranch in 1888. Most of Kalialinui, including the land that became the Waikamoi Preserve, has been held by Haleakala Ranch since that t...

Na Mele Aimoku

By: Hawaiian Historical Society

The Hawaiian Language Reprint Series was established by the Hawaiian Historical Society to make available to students and scholars books that were printed in the Hawaiian language during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Most have long been out of print, and access to surviving editions is generally limited to libraries and private collections. We hope that making these texts accessible will foster the use and appreciation of the Hawaiian language, encourage the buildin...

Am ajuns în Rai! Fotojurnal instantaneu din Polinezia Franceză

By: Florentin Smarandache

Am notat în jurnalul polinezian tot timpul, în avioane, în aeroporturi, în mașină, în autobuze, în pirogă, seara la hotel, ziua prin parcuri, în incinta muzeelor, prin restaurante, mergând pe stradă, după cum observam ceva interesant sau îmi venea vreo idee. Parodiindu-l pe Marcel Proust, aș zice: à la recherche du temps futur [în căutarea timpului viitor]: de aceea călătoresc. I wrote in the Polynesian diary all the time, in airplanes, in airports, in the car, in b...

Trapped by Political Desire: The Treatise

By: Matt R. Erickson

After decades of failing to reach his fellow conservatives, it was time for Will Hartline to try something radical enough to get noticed. He decided to “help” his political adversaries advance their cause, but really only as a trap to expose their deceptive tactics to the bright light of day. The “bait” he used for his Political Year Strategy was brilliantly simple — he merely called for Congress to change Election Day to February 29th. Changing the date for elections...
