REVIEWS

 

The New York Times Book Review named Volcanoes, Palm Trees and Privilege one of the Summer's Top Travel Reads!

 

 

On its list of 19 Amazing Books That Prove Indie Presses Deserve Your Attention, Buzzfeed says: "With her guidance and thoughtfulness, Prato pushes against the surface, locating herself within the people and landscape of Hawaii, without buying into visitor thinking--this is not a musing on mai tais and hula events.

Matador Travel Network calls Volcanoes, Palm Trees, and Privilege one of The 7 best travel beach books for this summer!

"Prato’s work stays winningly informal and idiosyncratic throughout and . . . coalesces into an intriguing and informative journey through the 50th state." Publishers Weekly

The New Indian Express says: "Prato's research and humor elevates her role to a chronicler of paradise."
