Discover King Kamehameha The Great...They say that one cannot truly understand a man unless one has walked a mile in their shoes. How would that ideology apply to a nation?

How would that ideology apply to a nation? What if it were one man that seemingly built a nation? What if this one man did not exist? Many would say to shoulder one person with such responsibility is cruel. Others say this is the way of honor. Yet, for one man, this was the truth of his life. That man is King Kamehameha.Born a child like every other human being on the face of the planet, just like you and me, this man was born under a prophecy that would control the course of his life and set forth into motion the future of a kingdom that would affect the entire world. Hidden away from the age of four until the age of majority, he was taught the warrior ways of his people, unaware that every event in his life was to lay groundwork for him to rule one day. He was born destined to be the king that would trample all other kings.Upon assuming control of the lands inherited by him, Kamehameha used his unparalleled intelligence and skills of the time to begin immediately fulfilling the prophecy that surrounded his birth, but his goal was not always greatness. His goal was that of many kings-peace and prosperity for his subjects. Many of the battles he was involved in began over revenge for injustices done to him or his extended family. All he wanted was peace. Yet, had he not sought his honorable ways, Hawaii would have never been the state it was.Many people know of Hawaii for its beauty and as a tropical destination hotspot, but very few know that Hawaii is single-handedly responsible for cornering the market on the sandalwood trade, which funded his quest for peace. Without him, Hawaii never would have been unified under one rule. This would have left it open to be conquered by the visiting Europeans who began arriving in the late 1700's. Could you imagine a British Hawaii or a Chinese Hawaii? Imagine what might have happened had Kamehameha been eliminated as a child, as many tried to do. Find out why he was called 'The Lonely One'.Kamehameha was also a stout traditionalist. His 'Law of the Splintered Paddle' has transcended time and was later incorporated into the Constitution of Hawaii. As you peruse the pages of this book, you will see how King Kamehameha rose from birth to death and became one of the greatest monarchs of time. Discover how in one generation, all a man's achievements can be overturned, but his legacy will continue. Take an informational trip that describes the origins of the Hawaiian Islands, the similarities between the first settlers of the islands and the Vikings, and the birth of Hawaii's 'Great King'. Follow his battles and see how those battles impacted Hawaii's history and created the wonderful destination spot you know today. Discover King Kamehameha the Great.Purchase This Book Today...
