Patrick V. Kirch, 1985. Feathered Gods and Fishhooks: An Introduction to Hawaiian Archaeology and Prehistory. Honolulu: University of Hawaii Press.
This richly-illustrated volume is widely regarded as the definitive account of Hawaiian archaeology and prehistory. Kirch provides an island-by-island review of major sites, as well as topical treatment of such subjects as material culture, settlement patterns, fishing, agricultural practices, burial, and demographic trends. “A clearly written, carefully organized, abundantly illustrated, and handsomely produced volume” (Hawaiian Journal of History).
