The stories of volcano goddess Pele brighten this classic collection, from her battle with the old volcano god “Ai-Lauu,” Eater of Forest, to her family’s adventures on these islands borne of fire. Noted folklorist W.D. Westervelt includes historical tales–an army killed by an eruption, a Hawaiian princess defying Pele–and scientific notes on geology.
