Summary
"Profiles the language of Hawaiʻi's working people in its rise from plantation jargon to a source of island identity and pride. Born on sugar plantations and spoken by more than half of Hawaiʻi's population, Pidgin captures multi-ethnic Hawaiʻi's heart and soul. Once again under attack by educators and bloggers, will Pidgin survive?"--Container
