The Naha Stone is a large volcanic rock located in Hilo, Hawaii. Desha, Stephen; Frazier, Frances N. (2000). Kamehameha and His Warrior Kekūhaupiʻo. Kamehameha Schools Press. The stone was used in the cultural traditions of Native Hawaiians, and many legends surround i. .The Naha Stone originated from Mount Waialeale on the Hawaiian island of Kauai.

Kamehameha IV, born Alexander ʻIolani Liholiho (February 9, 1834 – November 30, 1863), reigned as the fourth monarch of Hawaii under the title Ke Aliʻi o ko Hawaiʻi Pae ʻAina of the Kingdom of Hawaii from January 11, 1855 to November 30, 1863. His full Hawaiian name was Alekanetero ʻIolani Kalanikualiholiho Maka o ʻIouli Kūnuiākea o Kūkāʻilimoku. Alexander was born on February 9, 1834 in Honolulu on the island of Oʻahu.

To his nephew Kamehameha he leaves a single district and a powerful religious . And Kamehameha's mana was legendary.

To his nephew Kamehameha he leaves a single district and a powerful religious position: the guardianship of the war go. But the former king's division of power was shocking: by making Kamehameha the war god's guardian the dying king had effectively split his dominion between two men of unequal rank bypassing his youngest son entirely. The infuriated prince decided that the proper response was murdering some of Kamehameha's men and, in a symbolic riposte, Kamehameha conducted a religious ritual prohibited to any but the king.

Quick delivery, Doing research on the Kamehameha line. So far this book is awesome. Already seeing genealogy that may hook into my line.
The book was interesting and informative. The cover was not the same as in the picture shown, but it was fine.
Desha's biographical essay on Kamehameha the First follows all the others I have read on this important historical figure, the first to unify all the Hawaiian islands under one rule. This author has one great idea in mind---to create in the mind of his native Hawaiian readers pride in the accomplishments of the great king. This idea is certainly in line with the goals of the school whose press published the work ,and so is appropriate. Other authors of biographical essays on Kamehameha seemed to have other goals in mind, such as promoting the king as the greatest of the Hawaiian warriors.
What is missing, however, from all the works published are the elements of a comprehensive biography of Kamehameha, as opposed to biographical essays such as Desha's. What would be most valuable in a biography would a set of maps on his wars, a list of key advisors, period illustrations, etc.-all of which are missing in Desha's work.
This reviewer, while admiring Desha's devotion to the Hawaiian people, is still looking for the publication of a comprehensive biography of Kamehameha.
