Bailey's book traces the history of the Hawaiian monarchy from its primordial beginnings as descendants of the gods, to their succumbing to American expansionism. Hawaiians have oral history going back a thousand years, but the story for the world at large begins with the discovery of the Sandwich Island by Captain James Cook in 1778. Whalers, missionaries, and mercenaries undermined the traditional culture, allowing American conquest in 1893. Paul Bailey was the owner/publisher of Westernlore Press, and a writer of many books that focused on the Western American experience with a special focus on Latter-day Saint history. During the years Bailey ran Westernlore Press he continued to publish books focused on the Western United States that were highly regarded by libraries and which sold well.
