Songs of The Tradewinds: Recollections of Hawai'i By J.J. Meeker, Photographs by Galen Avery Rowell, Forward by Kris Kristofferson.
Songs of the Tradewinds offers a luscious look at the landscapes and seascapes of Hawai'i through J.J. Meeker's poems and the stunning full-color photos of Galen Rowell. With a lyrical foreword by singer/songwriter/actor and Hawai'i resident, Kris Kristofferson. Meeker's words and Rowell's photos captivate the reader as they guide us through Hawai'i's jungles and mountains and ocean views, and the Big Island's fiery volcano in this elegantly designed hardcover volume you can hold in your hand.
Jim Meeker's writing both personal and exuberant celebrates his aloha 'aina, love of the land, and the spirit and beauty he finds in Hawai'i. Galen Rowell was the archetypal adventure photographer, whose iconic images were published in leading magazines and dozens of books, exhibited in major galleries, and cherished by fans ranging from the Dalai Lama to Tom Brokaw.
