Princess Bernice Pauahi Bishop was the largest landowner and richest woman in the Hawaiian kingdom. Upon her death in 1884, she entrusted her property--"known as Bishop Estate--"to five trustees in order to create and maintain an institution that would benefit the children of Hawai'i: Kamehameha Schools. A century later, Bishop Estate controlled nearly one out of every nine acres in the state, a concentration of private land ownership rarely seen anywhere in the world. Then in August 1997 the unthinkable happened: Four revered kupuna (native Hawaiian elders) and a professor of trust-law publicly charged Bishop Estate trustees with gross incompetence and massive trust abuse. Entitled "Broken Trust," the statement provided devastating details of rigged appointments, violated trusts, cynical manipulation of the trust's beneficiaries, and the shameful involvement of many of Hawai'i's powerful. No one is better qualified to examine the events and personalities surrounding the scandal than two of the original "Broken Trust" authors.Their comprehensive account together with historical background, brings to light information that has never before been made public, including accounts of secret meetings and communications involving Supreme Court justices.

For reasons known only to him, Francis Teague hadn’t told anyone about his adolescent years during the 1940s in Monticello, Florida. But that all changed when his granddaughter, Erica Bass, a Leon County paramedic decided she wanted to know about them. Her mother initially discouraged her as whenever the subject came up by her or Erica’s grandmother, he clammed up and avoided the subject altogether. But Erica was determined. Urged by her boyfriend, Aaron, she visited her grandfather on his eighty-sixth birthday in an attempt to get him to agree to talk to her and hopefully write a book about his life as a teenager. Surprisingly, he agreed to talk to her and the book. But with the condition, she wrote everything he told her and from his point of view. Erica accepted, and the project began. Her grandfather not only talked about his adolescent years but revealed secrets he’d never told anyone not his parents, Erica’s grandmother, nor Erica’s mother. Some were emotionally charged, some were highly personal, and some were mysterious and suspenseful. Others were stressful, and some were downright humorous and entertaining. But Erica was overwhelmed when she discovered a shocking family secret.
