EDDIE WOULD GO: THE STORY OF EDDIE AIKAU HAWAIIAN HERO by STUART HOLMES COLEMAN

Summary

Eddie Would Go is the only biography of one of Hawaii's greatest heroes. A shy and humble man by nature, Eddie Aikau became larger than life in the ocean. As a surfer, he rode the biggest waves in the world; as a lifeguard, he saved hundreds of lives from the North Shore's treacherous waters; and as a proud Hawaiian, he sacrificed his life to save his fellow sailors aboard the voyaging canoe Hokule'a. But more than a biography of a courageous waterman, Stuart Coleman's Eddie Would Go also tells the story of modern Hawaii and Eddie's role in the Hawaiian Renaissance during the 1970's. The book is based on numerous interviews with his family, friends and many of Hawaii's leading watermen and scholars. Coleman weaves together their memories in an exciting and informative story. By exploring his legendary life and legacy, this book will show why Eddie has become such an enduring icon in Hawaii and the surfing world.
