This chapter recounts the events surrounding the return of the author (Glenn Wharton) to Kohala. Wharton described the slow stream of tourists who stopped, took pictures in front of the imposing figure of King Kamehameha, and got back in their cars. Aside from the periodic carload of tourists, most people were locals going about their errands. They stopped to speak with each other and to visit the Bond Memorial Library. The chapter further narrates how the author received a pamphlet about North Kohala from the volunteers of the Kohala Senior Citizens. These elders talked with great pride about their town, particularly its history.
