Outside Magazine reports on the Molokai Ranch near Maui, "where rooms run $355 a night and guests spend their days mountain biking, kayaking, snorkeling, fishing . . . the resort is the centerpiece of the Ranch's 54,000 acres." The Ranch once "had been considered as fundamental to the island's way of life, and as inextricable from its future, as the sun. But that was before Big Pineapple pulled out and poverty settled in; before Big Money came ashore with bold plans for converting the Ranch into a resort and real estate empire." Now native Molokai's are upset that the Ranch is using their natural resources, decreasing their fresh water supply and threatening their simplistic ways of life. Reporter Joe Kane provides insight on the issues.
