Hawaii The Big Island Revealed : The Ultimate Guidebook
by Andrew Doughty

Easily the most definitive guidebook on Hawaii. The Big Island is divided into seven sections, and each is covered extensively in the guide, Kamuela being no exception. The book features numerous maps, illustrations and pictures, and Doughty dispenses some excellent travel advice. If you had to get one book on Hawai'i, this would be it. 

 

Hawaii: The Big Island Trailblazer - a good book with excellent tips on hiking, snorkeling, and other active things to do.

Finally, there is even a book set aside to beaches: Beaches of the Big Island.
