ESQUIRE says: "Lloyd Stone was born . . . on a California desert . . . He went to school . . . graduating from the University of Southern California as a music major . . . supposed to be a teacher . . . joined a circus bound for Honolulu instead . . . Quit the circus to design in a jewelry shop . . . later joined the staff at Kulamanu Studios as pianist-composer . . . '

THE ISLANDER says: "Mr. Stone is probably among the most versatile contributors to the arts of whom Hawaii can boast. His poetry reflects Hawaii. He does not sing of the palms and the surf, but of the earthy human beauty which is the heritage of the islands. He finds his niche as an interpreter of that which lies beneath the lovely outward shell of Hawaii. He has made Hawaii his home. And Hawaii is fortunate."

1949. Author signed & inscribed. First edition. Hardcover: black boards, silver brad binding. 62 pages are heavy black paper with silver lettering and title and blank magenta pages. Board covers have small cracks, bumps, edge wear, most of what is seen in photo. No dust jacket, but front flap is inserted in book. Good.
