A definitive history of a man and the ranch he founded that has grown to mythic proportions. The Parker Ranch is not only a history of an exceptional man and his family, but it is an important chapter in Hawaiian history. The book reads like a Greek odyssey and readers quickly become fascinated with the lives of the characters that were John Parkers descendants. The book is written based on research using Parker Ranch archives, family letters and through hours of interviews with Richard Smart, the ranch’s current owner and direct descendant of John Parker.
