About the Author

Photographer, paddler, and adventurer, author Peter Caldwell has made the Hawaiian Islands his home for the past 45 years.

In addition to Adventurer’s Hawai‘i, he is the author of five other books including the acclaimed definitive history of the annual Moloka‘i to Oahu canoe race, Moloka‘i-Oahu through the Years.

Three of his other books, Echo Lake Reflections, Desolation Wilderness North and Desolation Wilderness South, focus on California’s High Sierra, where his family maintains a fourth-generation cabin on Echo Lake near Lake Tahoe.

Now a retired pediatrician and a charter member of the Wilderness Medical Society, he spends his time not only on Oahu but also the Big Island where his family built a second home close to Volcanoes National Park.
