Captain Cook lands in Hawaii during the Makahiki festival.  Hawaiians have never seen anyone who looks like these strangely attired white beings.  Mistaken for the God Lono, Cook begins to feel godly—and behave as if he is a god.  Disaster follows hubris.  Epic in its scope, Dennis Carroll’s historical tragedy chronicles Cook’s journey toward first contact, and catastrophe.

When Lucy Thurston and Sybil Bingham arrive on the shores of 'Oahu in 1820, a year after Queen Ka'ahumanu overthrew the traditional Kapu system in ancient Hawai'i, they immediately attempt their missionary task.  Queen Kaahumanu, however, is more interested in their dresses than a new god and has no desire for any new religion.  Sybil and Lucy persevere, and so begins the slow, gradual process of Ka'ahumanu’s conversion.  This complex historical drama explores different perspectives on Hawai'i’s official adoption of Christianity—from the caste system to notions of monogamy.
