About this book

British naturalist Robert Cyril Layton Perkins was one of the last to see some of the great Hawaiian forest birds alive. The journals and correspondence of Perkins during his collecting years from 1892-1901 are assembled here together for the first time.

His journals and notes present island biologists and historians with detailed information on the species he observed and collected. This work is an essential reference for biologists of all disciplines in helping to understand what Hawai'i was like more than a century ago, when the natural Hawaiian landscape and its occupants were much different than they are today.
