Description: 

Temple tells Gavin that her family "may go on to Hawaii in the spring" (44); they don't, but by 1929 an average of about 22,000 tourists visited the islands annually. As part of his account of how the racial demographics of Yoknapatawpha change during the 20th century, the narrator mentions "Pearl Harbor," by which he means the surprise Japanese attack on the US Navy's base on Hawaii on 7 December 1941 that plunged the nation into World War II (193).
