Read this book and use it to retrace Afong's moves in Hawaii, from the lychee and banyan trees he had planted at his home at the corner of School and Nuuanu in Honolulu, to his beach house in Waikiki (which was condemned to create Fort DeRussy), to his plantation on the Big Island. If you go to China, you can visit Chun Afong's estate, or what remains of it, in China, in what is now part of Zhuhai. Make your next vacation into an adventure in history or just crack open this history book as it retraces many of the life lessons of an extraordinary man.
