Letters from Hawaii: An Autobiographical Sketch of R. K. Lindsey, JR.'s Life and Work

Hawaii native R. K. Lindsey, JR. has just released his eighth book, “Letters from Hawai’i,” a collection of fifty-eight letters and nine postcards inspired by Mark Twain’s 1866 collection for the Sacramento Union. Lindsey’s letters are an autobiographical sketch of his diverse career as a probation officer, state representative, farmer, assets manager, and Office of Hawaiian Affairs trustee.

Throughout the book, Lindsey weaves together wit, humor, history, and wistful words of wisdom in a conversation with his fictional pen pal Mossimo Antolini in London, England. While Antolini is a fictional character, the substance of the letters is true and reflective of Lindsey’s real experiences and insights.

In the book, Lindsey writes about the inspiration for “Letters from Hawaii,” which stems from his role as a leader for several family reunions. He wanted to share the stories of his life and the lives of his ancestors with future generations and provide a glimpse into the real people behind the names and photos in their genealogy book. “I want our grandchildren and great-grandchildren to know that their papa and tutu were real people, who lived full and joyful lives,” Lindsey writes. “Hence this book of letters and stories for them to reflect on.”

In addition to sharing his personal experiences, Lindsey also includes quotes that inspire him, such as John Kennedy’s inaugural speech, Henry Thoreau’s observations on the human condition, and passages from the Bible. He also touches on political and social issues, such as the threat of nuclear war and the importance of the fruit of the spirit, as well as reflecting on the challenges and joys of life.

Throughout “Letters from Hawaii,” Lindsey employs his signature wit and humor to bring his stories to life and offer a unique perspective on the world. His writing is relatable and engaging, making for a thought-provoking and enjoyable read.

“Letters from Hawaii” is a work that Lindsey hopes will touch readers’ hearts and is targeted toward the Hawaii market. It is a valuable addition to Lindsey’s work and a must-read for anyone interested in Hawaiian history, personal reflections, and insightful observations on life.
