Hawai`i Ways recounts bemusing intersections of an author who lives in two disparate worlds. Rochelle delaCruz has one foot in the small, laid-back town of Hilo, Hawai`i on the southernmost island in the Hawaiian chain and another in Seattle, Washington, a bustling high-tech city in the Pacific Northwest. Even though Hawai`i became the 50th state in 1959, life on remote islands in the middle of the Pacific Ocean 2,500 miles off the coast of the continental U.S. is notably different, not just when she was growing up many years ago but even today. Read about her amusing episodes as she navigates these two worlds of rural island versus urban continental life, first as a college student then a teacher in Washington state while returning often to Hawai`i to touch base with friends and family. If you have ever found yourself entangled in sticky cross-cultural webs, you are in good company.
