From the Author
Our acclaimed Photo-Finder Feature is unique to our "Driving & Discovering" books: no other guidebook or guidebook series anywhere offers this valuable innovation. Each photo is numbered and corresponds to the same number on an adjacent map. This shows the visitor exactly where all of Maui's and Molokai's most beautiful and photogenic sights are located, and allows the visitor to preview ALL areas of the islands before visiting them to make the most of valuable vacation time. Since I personally wrote this book as well as made all of the 330 photos, I am able to link all of the book's information into one very complete, thorough and comprehensive reference work. This is one guidebook in which the photos are just as valuable a tool for the visitor as the text is. The quality of photography and reproduction is excellent: the Eastman Kodak Company is our sponsor.

About the Author
Richard Sullivan lives in Hilo, Hawaii's Big Island. He was a fine arts major at the State University of New York at Buffalo while working nights in his uncle's photo lab. His first professional photography job was as a freelance papparrazo in Hollywood. The idea for Driving & Discovering Hawaii guides was born out of an assignment for the Los Angeles Times Sunday Magazine
. Unable to locate the beaches and waterfalls the Times wanted him to photograph -even the Hawaii Visitors Bureau didn't know- he eventually found them, and decided a new kind of guidebook was needed. Driving & Discovering Oahu
was the first book in the series, and was won the Best Hawaii Guidebook
prize in the Hawaii Visitors Bureau/American Airlines Travel Journalism Awards
