The Keepers of the Sand is a personal memoir written by former Waikiki Beachboy Barry Napoleon, who was born in 1929 in Honolulu, Hawaii. Barry's father, Walter Napoleon, was the Captain of the lifeguards at the War Memorial Natatorium at Waikiki, and Barry grew up following his father to work at the beach. He began working as a beachboy in 1952 and continued for the next 30 years. The Keepers of the Sand details his life and times on the beach, the people he knew, and the culture at Waikiki during that time.
