Hunting wild boar in Hawaii

A lively and talkative account of the Pacific and western coast of America in the 1840s. The Collingwood stopped at the Hawaiian Islands, Mexico and California, as well as other South Pacific islands such as Tahiti and Samoa. Forbes describes the value of this unguarded account of Hawaii, including a walking tour of the Kilauea volcano, description of Byron Bay at Hilo, an audience with the king, wild boar hunting, and so forth. Following an accident, Walpole convalesced at a native village in the Nuuanu Valley and 'had ample opportunity to observe native life'.
