The Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941, brought to a sudden end my happy, carefree, post college years in Honolulu. I found myself on duty that morning in the laboratory of The Queena€™s Hospital with only a Japanese aide for a helper. This book tells the story of the major changes that took place during the twenty-four years I spent in the Islands. My marriage to a naval officer engineer took us after the war to the Island of Maui, where we lived first in a rain forest and then on a sugar plantation.The officers discovered that a Navy gas mask cover would hold three bottles of champagne. ... When the dry spell came I phoned the chemist at the Dole pineapple factory laboratory to inquire about the alcohol ... It had a very strange odor.
