Paddler, photographer and author, Peter Caldwell has lived in Hawai‘i for over 35 years. As a member of O‘ahu’s Änuenue Canoe Club, he has had a chance to paddle with and learn from one of the most legendary figures in the sport, Nappy Napoleon, who has paddled in the Moloka‘i race every year since 1958.

With eight channel crossings to his own credit, including two as a steersman, Caldwell has an intimate knowledge of the event and the vagaries of the Kaiwi Channel. His photographs have often appeared in Pacific Paddler magazine as well as other outdoor publications.

Now a retired Honolulu pediatrician, he is also the author of three other books: Bac-si: A Doctor Remembers Vietnam, Adventurer’s Hawai‘i, and Echo Lake Reflections.
