Product description

Product Description

"Vivid and touching, Aloha Joe in Hawaii is a rare type of book
that not only educates, but also moves."
Any Subject Books

This book is the sunny and inspiring tale of someone who refuses to be defeated by the adversities in his life. Scarred by a childhood of abuse, by injury and trauma as a Sergeant in the U.S. Marines and by a totally fortuitous hit-and-run accident, he finally takes his life into his own hands and moves to the 'Big Island' of Hawaii which has a reputation for offering a healing lifestyle.

Immersed in a jungle environment where geckos are his companions and he can forage for fruit every day to make his breakfast smoothies, he gradually slows to the pace of island life. He abandons tv, and instead listens to the sound of the rain on the roof. He learns how to greet and be greeted according to the beautiful customs of the island's inhabitants, enjoys local food and allows serendipity to guide him.

Joe's book is not just an account of his own life experiences. He is at the same time imparting his attractive and compelling philosophy of life which might be summarized in his words:

"Give yourself permission to live the life that you have always wanted to live."

It may mean selling your possessions and moving to the place of your dreams to engage in a simple way of life, but following your heart is more important than anything else.

Some of the areas of the Big Island covered are Hilo, Ke'eau, Puna, Pahoa, Kalapana, Red Road, Vacationland, Volcano, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, South Kohala Coast, Waikoloa, Discovery Harbor, and more!

About the Author

Joe Holt (aka Aloha Joe) was born in Santa Barbara, California in 1978. After living in orphanages, foster homes, and a forced child labor camp, he signed to join the United States Marine Corps on his 17th birthday. After two enlistments in the Marines as an Aviation Electrical Engineer, he had attained the rank of Sergeant, had served two tours overseas, and had earned a National Defense Medal. A combination of military and off-duty injuries led to his medical retirement at the age of 23. After his early retirement, Joe began serving non-profits in his local communities. As a Patriot Supporter of the Vietnam Brotherhood, as well as the Historian and Sergeant at Arms of the American Legion, he recorded veterans stories to help preserve America's rich national past for more than a decade. He is a member of the Kona, Hi. Freemasons, Pacific Grove, Ca. Freemasons, Scottish Rite Valley of San Jose, Ca., Chaplain of the National Sojourners, (as well as an ordained minister) and is also a life member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars and Disabled American Veterans. He is the father of two sons, Joseph Jr. and Justin, and now lives on the Big Island of Hawaii. He is a full time writer, life coach, photographer, artist, and Ambassador of Aloha.
