Bamboo Ridge Press
Frederick B. Wichman
Softcover, 144 pp.

Although Pele is always associated with Big Island, we are reminded by Wichman’s retellings that the Pele legends have a strong link to the island of Kauai. Here, we have Pele paddling in from Kahiki to Kalalau where she first looked for a home. We are reminded that the pig god Kamapua`a lived, fought, and loved on Kauai. And we find that Lohiau fatefully fell in love with Pele at Ha`ena, at the hula halau which, even today, can be found at the end of the road. A fitting fourth book in the Kauai Tales series.
