On Her Own Terms

This chapter discusses Samuel Alexander, who was the father of Annie Montague Alexander. It begins by stating the similarities that Annie shared with him, as well as the impact his death had on her. The next section narrates the story of Samuel's life: his early childhood in Maui, his engagement to Martha Eliza Cooke, and his search for gold in California. This is followed by a discussion on his return to Hawaii, where he planted banana trees and raised sugar cane. This led Samuel to become the operations manager of a sugar plantation in Maui. At this point, the discussion introduces Henry Baldwin, who was Samuel's business partner. Together they began a sugar plantation, and soon became the largest sugar producers in Hawaii. The chapter also takes a look at Samuel's move to Oakland, California, a move that did not suit his daughter Annie.
