This book’s collaborative author, a Korean-American and researcher of Koreans, Roberta Chang has donated 700 pieces of photos and 35 pieces of videos of interviews extending 20 years of the 2nd generation of Korean immigrants migrated to Hawaii from 1903 to 1924 to the Trans-humanities Research Team’s archive. The other author HK Research Prof. Seonju Lee had transcribed and gone over the English interviews for 4 years and selected 19 out of 700 interviews to publish them in 2012 from Book Korea. The resource value of the book was recognized by the University of Hawaii Press and has been republished in 2013. The 19 interviews illustrate from various angles how the immigrant community was formed, what the lives of immigrants were like and how they became bonded with religion, what relationship the immigrants had with their homeland when it faced troubles, how they made groups according to leaders and how enmity began between them. These interviews are at once both private experience and vivid records of Korean history.
