This map isn't part of any series, but we have other maps of Hawaii that you might want to check out.

Map of the island of Molokai [gmap]; the fifth-largest of the Hawaiian islands, and famous, at the time, for being host to the leper's community run by Belgian priest Father Damien de Veuster.

The colony was in the unincorporated town of Kalaupapa [gmap], which can be found on the western edge of the dorsal-fin-looking "horn" jutting from the top of the island.
