ABOUT:

Includes 45 traditional legends and stories about pre-contact Hawaiian life, written at a 4th grade reading level. Includes illustrations, pronunciation, guide and glossary.


REVIEWS:

"The collection is a superb resource for learning the history and customs of the Hawaiians, and the legends open windows to Hawaiian culture that textbooks close."

 

- Iowa Reading Journal

"While it may be read alo, its primary purpose is to serve as a literary accompaniment to chapters in Betty Dunford's popular textbook The Hawaiians of Old."

- Multicultural Review

"... it was enjoyable to leap along behind the stories, like a fish skimming just under water just a thin skim away from understanding. The book is nicely designed with wide margins on each page, featuring a learn-as-you-go index to unfamiliar Hawaiian terms used in the stories."

- The Honolulu Advertiser

"Informative and entertaining stories explain the origin of the islands, the contributions of the gods, and the exploits of great warriors. Black-and-white illustrations depict a variety of cultural artifacts."
