Hawaiʻi Island Legends: Pele, Pīkoi, and Others
Here are the heroes, gods and goddesses of Hawaiʻi at their most powerful and colorful–but here are also stories of a cowrie shell, a banana skin, a hidden island and ordinary people who experienced extraordinary events. Collected and edited by noted Hawaiian scholar Mary Kawena Pukui, and retold for a broad audience by Caroline Curtis, this volume is delightful introduction to Hawaiʻi's rich tradition of storytelling for young and old alike.
"[This] collection...will fascinate all who recognize how often truth is told in the guise of myths and legends." –Honolulu Star-Bulletin
