The grandchild of missionaries and the niece of a prosperous Kauai sugar planter, Elsie Hart Wilcox was born and raised on her uncle’s plantation. Unlike many of her peers, however, Miss Elsie did not marry, but pursued a full time career as an advocate for change, including education, improved health, and full participation in the life of the community for second-generation Asian Americans. The book also provides insights into the historical development of Kauai and Hawaii in general from 1910 to 1940. 196 pages.
