Summary "From the launch in Hawai'i in May 2014, around the world to Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and North and South America, this beautiful hardcover book chronicles Hkle‘a's epic mission to raise awareness of and nurture worldwide sustainability. Interwoven with descriptions of Hkle‘a's experiences in port are the voices of the master navigators and crew members, who guide the ship along the ocean's trackless path, and the local pioneers -- scientists, teachers, and children touched by Hkle‘a' - who work tirelessly to weather the many environmental challenges in our modern lives. This is a story about our need to draw together into one global community. By respecting one another and nature's delicate and intricate systems, this book captures the many ways indigenous cultures are committed to living in ecological balance." -- provided by publisher.
