Mai-Kai: History, Mystery and Adventure – The Book

Saturday 6th December 2014 - 9:17:41 AM

Sample Cover I have been researching the Mai-Kai in one form or another for over 12 years. I have been seriously looking into its history and people for a long time to document the past. I had thought I would do a book that was just pretty pictures. Once I began to talk to the people around this landmark, I found their stories amazingly compelling. Now the book will also have a wonderful story too.

I have worked on this book project in my spare time for years now. I have spent vacations in back rooms scanning images with my wife, and visiting old timers to hear their tales. I have tracked people down and interviewed people from Florida to California to Tahiti. I have a newfound respect for those who create books. It is a lot of work and time.

I hope to get the book ready in 2015 and get it published. Please support my efforts by simply liking the Facebook page first, and if you happen to have something you think will help the book, please email me and share it.

    Can I pre-order the book? This is so exciting. I came across your site while searching for “A-Frame” exterior ideas for my house and couldn’t believe that you’ve put so much work into loving the Mai-Kai. I am staring at a postcard of it from my cube at an office in Kansas City as I type this. What a magical place!
