Maui, the Magic Isle. Now home to more than 100,000 residents, it was named for a mythical demi-god believed to have pulled all the islands from the sea with a magical fishhook. In Mowee, the Island's fascinating history is revealed, beginning with the politics of an ancient Hawaiian chiefdom and ending with Maui's present development as a growing population of U.S. mainland transplants, and descendants of plantation-era immigrants from around the world, debate the future of the Magic Isle.
