Having no written language, Hawaiians passed their history and life lessons down in the form of legends, which were committed to memory and told and retold. And within these stories are a multitude of dreams-as in a famous legend of goddess Pele, who travels in a dream to meet and entrance the high chief Lohi'au. Dreams continue to play an important role in modern Hawaiian culture and are considred by some to have as powerful an influence today as in ancient times. In this companion volume to her award-winning Hawaiian Legends of the Guardian Spirit, artist Caren Loebel-Fried retells and illuminates nine dream stories from Hawai'i's past that are sure to please readers young and old, kama'aina and malihini, alike.
