Excerpt from The Improvement Era, Vol. 8: April, 1905; Organ of the Young Men's Mutual Improvement Association
This grand mountain is located on East Maui, the second largest island in the Hawaiian group.
Haleakala is probably ten thousand feet above sea level, risin... g gradually, on three sides from the seashore, a distance of twenty to thirty miles. On the northwest side and extending from sea to sea, is the beautiful plain of Kahului.
This valley, or plain, only fifty feet above sea level, is twelve to fifteen miles in width, and separates the high precipitous mount ains of West Maui from Haleakala on the east. This now fertile plain, for more than a thousand years past, has been the scene, per haps, of a hundred bloody battles. The blood of tens of thousands of brave warriors has contributed to the enrichment of the soil.
