Synopsis:
Myths and Legends of Hawai‘i is a one-volume selection from the four volumes of ancient Polynesian lore by the late Dr. William D. Westervelt, the most prolific and popular retellers of Hawaiian folk tales. The selections, edited for the enjoyment of the modern reader, embody the ethos of the Hawaiian people of old that can still be found in the islands today. Here are the exploits of Maui, the story of Hina, the saga of Pele, her sister Hi‘iaka and the legends of ghosts, gods, menehuene and ‘aumakua.
