Review "Photographs of O'Keeffe smiling broadly are evidence of her own assertion that she considered Hawai'i one of the most beautiful and remarkable of places." -- Honolulu Academy of Arts

"If my painting is what I have to give back to the world for what the world gives to me, I may say that these paintings are what I have to give at present for what three months in Hawaii gave to me." -- Georgia O'Keeffe, in Time Magazine

"A beautifully illustrated .. thoughtful memoir by ... a 12-year-old girl, ... now an octogenarian ... [who] served as the notoriously "difficult" O'Keeffe's companion and tour guide.” -- San Francisco Chronicle
