 John Tayman tells the story of Hawaii's infamous leper colony, in existence from 1866-1967. The New York Times praised Tayman's work, "Tayman's narrative pulls the reader beyond the superficial, medical horrors of leprosy to the more devastating human horrors that lie beneath. In doing so, he has brought to light the profound dignity of his subjects.
