Title:Born in Paradise
von Tempski, Armine   
Published:   1940
Publisher:Ox Bow Press
Tags:autobiography, non-fiction, ranch life, Hawaii

Sixty thousand acres there were on Haleakala Ranch—sixty thousand acres, herds of cattle, scores of cowboys, blooded horses, and a setting of fabulous beauty. Over it all as manager, presided Armine von Tempski’s dashing, warm-hearted, tempestuous father—himself son of a von Tempski who as a young cavalry officer had fled political persecution in Poland to lead a life of adventure in the Antipodes.

Before she could walk, Armine began to ride, carried on a pillow in front of the saddle. Boundless space surrounded her, music and laughter were eternally in her ears. Volcanoes and tidal waves, glorious blue and gold days on mountain tops, great winds singing a saga of freedom, cattle pouring like red rivers between tumbled hills, made each day a fresh adventure. With engaging freshness of style, Armine von Tempski not only captures the incredible beauty of the Islands, but also creates for our delight the vigorous and free ranch-life she knew in her Paradise.—Excerpt from Dust Cover.
