Description of this Book

...Duke was the man. The play [is] essentially a not-so-thinly-disguised homage to his amazingly rich and humble life, from early Olympic beginnings to an acting career in Hollywood, to being sheriff of Honolulu, to returning home and basking in the role of Hawaii's cultural ambassador. ...`Here was a man who was as important to the people of Hawaii as Michael Jordan was to Chicagoans.' But we're not talking some dusty history lecture... Who could resist getting sucked into such a timeless fable? Duke's statue in Waikiki comes to life when it's discovered that Hawaii's surf has been missing for two weeks; the ocean's `like glass', the groms say. This is no average flat spell, he realizes as the ultra evil Mr Double Bogey has plans to turn the entire Hawaiian Island chain into the world's biggest golf course and convention center. Bogey's holding the surf hostage and won't give it back until Duke presents him with all Hawaii's land deeds. So--in between historically informative monologues detailing Duke's life--the good guys go looking for the surf, literally... Marcus Sanders, Surf News
