HAWAIIAN MYTHS OF EARTH, SEA AND SKY

Twelve tales re-told from the creation lore of Hawaii. These gods and demi-gods are as hard to keep straight as their Olympian counterparts, but a pronouncing glossary at the back of the book is a handy aid. The title defines the content and reference to the standard bibliographies indicates a dearth of collected legends from Hawaii at the juvenile end. Nevertheless, school units on our newest state are popular at this reading level and the book, which is written in a clear style, employs some Hawaiian words and translated, traditional chants, with natural ease.
