Unbroken – A Visual Guide via Google Earth

I recently finished reading Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. It was an immensely powerful story of the human spirit and will to survive and flourish. The only thing I felt was lacking in the book was a visual guide (i.e., map) of Louie’s crazy trip around the Pacific. Therefore I made this Google Earth kmz file which has pins for many of the significant locations in the book once Louie is sent to Honolulu. The kmz file can be viewed in Google Maps by clicking the link, with the option to download if interested (see link below). Here’s a list of the locations included:
