Kimo's Escape: The Story of a Hawaiian Boy Who Learns to Believe in Himself
By Dan Robison
Kimo knew that touching a village chief was a crime punishable by death—in fact, a violator could be beheaded or thrown into the boiling lavas of Mauna Lea. So when he accidentally ran into and knocked over his village chief, Kimo dove off a cliff top into the ocean and escaped to the City of Refuge on the Island of Hawaii.
Will he ever be able to return to his village? Will he ever see his family and friends again?
Kimo’s Escape answers these and other questions and tells the story of one boy who conquer’s his fear and learns to believe in himself. A great read for the young person in the household.
