Honolulu: Star Bulletin for the author, 1920. Hardcover. Very Good+. 64 pp. 8vo., bound in original illustrated boards. "This little book contains many interesting sidelights on Hawaiian history. Its appearance is happily timed with this year of the centennial of the arrival of the American missionaries, one of whose notable achievements is herein appreciatively related in this account of the Royal School. The conversion of the subject matter from family legendary lore to literary form has been a painstaking task of several years on the part of the venerable author, a high Chiefess descended from the distinguished 'father of kings', whose name forms the title of this work. High Chiefess Kekaaniau Pratt had reached the age of eighty-five years when she completed the writing of 'Keoua', herewith submitted to the public as a contribution to Hawaiian history, as well as a fond tribute to her renowned ancestors" (introduction).
