Adventure


In fiction, the adventurer figure or Picaro may be regarded as a descendant of the knight-errant of Medieval romance. Like the knight, the adventurer roams through episodic encounters, usually involving wealth, romance, or fighting. Unlike the knight, the adventurer was a realistic figure, often lower class or otherwise impoverished, who is forced to make his way to fortune, often by deceit. Also, an adventurer is a roguish hero of low social class who lives by his or her wits in a corrupt society.

1848, Kamehameha III granted fee-simple interest of Kalialinui to a chiefly steward, Kamaikaaloa (Kamaikaaloa), who held the land through the remainder of his lifetime, and subsequently conveyed it to his heirs. Kalalawalu—daughter of Kamaikaaloa and Kealohaaukai—and her husband, Douglas Panee, sold the land of Kalialinui to Haleakala Ranch in 1888. Most of Kalialinui, including the land that became the Waikamoi Preserve, has been held by Haleakala Ranch since that t...

Na Mele Aimoku

By: Hawaiian Historical Society

The Hawaiian Language Reprint Series was established by the Hawaiian Historical Society to make available to students and scholars books that were printed in the Hawaiian language during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Most have long been out of print, and access to surviving editions is generally limited to libraries and private collections. We hope that making these texts accessible will foster the use and appreciation of the Hawaiian language, encourage the buildin...

Groggily I stepped out of the back into the open night air. There wasn’t a human sound other than that of the soft wind in my eardrums for tens of hundreds of miles, and the incredible beauty of the lighted sky hit me with a cracking wake-up punch that lifted my senses to an everlasting high. It was a sky so completely illuminated by eons and eons of just arriving fresh starlight. I had never seen so many glimmering lights before. Every star ever identified by the histor...

Frankie Fey

By: Rigby Taylor

An amusing series of adventures in which a personable young man encounters, racism, ecological vandalism, political correctness, petty criminals, fake religions, slave traders and the results of unfettered capitalism -- in an ultimately successful attempt to know himself in the Delphic sense, and, with a bit of luk, find someone to love.

Frankie Unlike his peers at St Puritan’s High School, fifteen year-old Frankie was addicted to observing things carefully so he could understand how they function, and why they aren’t more efficient, more rational, more… sensible. Having endured a somewhat late onset of puberty, he had recently been making up for lost time by conducting experiments and observations in the field of sex and sexuality. Recent investigation into the aesthetics and mechanics of same-sex c...

The Adult Obesity Epidemic in the United States : A Comprehensive ...

By: Fritz Dufour

This is both a descriptive and a prescriptive approach to the adult obesity epidemic in the United States. First, the book shows the origins of obesity and how it blew out of proportion to become a crisis in an era of advanced medicine. The books precisely describes the factors of obesity, which are multipronged: the food producers, government, the food marketing experts, the food distributors and the restaurants, and even the victims themselves: the obese. An analysis o...

Why are four out of ten people living in the United States obese? There may not be a specific and definite answer to this question, but no one can say they’re not aware of this epidemic. While most of us may allege different causes that drive obesity, we are all aware of what the culprit is. It’s, for the most part, the food. Bigger portions, poor and confusing diet, inactivity, you name it, it always comes down to the food we eat. Everything is big in America: cars, hou...
