Hawai‘i Island Legends

Pele, Pīkoi and Others

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Here are the heroes, gods and goddesses of Hawai‘i 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 a delightful introduction to Hawai‘iʻs 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."
—<i>Honolulu Star-Bulletin</i>

Other titles available in this series by Pukui and Curtis include Tales of the Meneuhe and Other Legends of Hawai‘i and The Water of Kāne and Other Legends of the Hawaiian Islands.
