About the Author
After graduating from college in Chicago, Sara jumped on a plane to California with just one suitcase and $100 in her pocket. Then she hopped across the Pacific to Japan, eventually splitting the difference by living on Maui, the Big Island and O'ahu for a few years. She is an avid outdoor enthusiast who has worked for the National Park Service in California and as a volunteer at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Already the author of over 30 travel and nonfiction books, Sara also contributed to Lonely Planet's Honolulu, Waikiki & Oahu and Hiking In Hawaii guides.
